Why Is Obama Afraid the White House Is Going to Get Egged on Halloween?
President Barack Obama digs Halloween, but he’s a little afraid that the White House is going to get egged this year. Why? Well…
Trick-or-treating is awesome, right? I mean, you get to dress up, go around to people’s houses, bother them, and instead of telling you off, they give you candy. I’d say it’s definitely one of the high points of Halloween.
But of course, there’s always that one house that gives out healthy snacks. You know the type: You open your bag, they drop something in… and then you find out that it’s a package of baby carrots. I do appreciate the attempt at controlling childhood obesity—really, I do—but I mean, come on. Mom will feed us baby carrots anytime. It totally defeats the purpose of trick-or-treating.
And this, my friends, is why our normally-fearless President is actually afraid right now. He’s afraid that the White House is going to get egged on Halloween. Because you see, the First Lady is one of those people. The healthy type. Uh-oh.
Last night on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show, Barack Obama lamented his wife Michelle’s idea of a treat: “Halloween is coming up, and she’s been giving—for the last few years—the kids fruit. And raisins. In the bag,” he said, sounding bewildered. Then he continued, “And I said to her, the White House is going to get egged if this keeps up!”
His solution? Reese’s Pieces. “We need to throw some CANDY in there!” Obama laughed.
I agree. Reese’s is always a good idea. But then again, what else can we expect from the leader of the Let’s Move campaign? Maybe we’ll just have to get used to Michelle’s raisins. I mean, hey: At least they DID come from the White House!
