Michelle Obama Busts a Move With Giant Dancing Vegetables

By Matthew Larotonda

Feb 27, 2014

BOWIE, Md. — First lady Michelle Obama wants you to eat your vegetables. She also loves dancing. So it may not have come as a surprise when she merged those two interests today, busting a move with a trio of giant, human-sized vegetable dancers.

The eggplant, carrot and broccoli characters of “Super Sprowtz,” a traveling troupe promoting healthy eating in kids, met Obama today during the fourth anniversary tour of her “Let’s Move” campaign. The first lady had traveled to daycare center La Petite Academy in the Washington suburbs to announce it would be joining 900 others from the national Learning Care Group in the adoption of new health and fitness guidelines for the children in their care. The criteria aligns with the goals of Obama’s initiative, aimed at curbing childhood obesity.

Obama, characters Colby Carrot, Brian Broccoli and Erica Eggplant, and their human friends led several dozen children in stretches and dance. She told them how important it is to eat healthy and shared noted that she loves spinach.

Maybe. Her keen interest in string beans has certainly taken her far, I’d say.

I reckon the carrot, broccoli and eggplant were safe.

Has anyone seen the lobster?

Jeez, another no-show.

Just exactly what I was always hoping to see - a news article about the First Lady of the United States “busting a move”. Good grief.

I watch ABC News for one thing, and one thing only...The WNN Polka.

The amount of crap you have to wade through to get to it is unbelievable. CBS’s Up To The Minute is far more professional.

Maybe Moose can get Rosie O’Donnell to join her on tour so that they can be role models for the children.

The last time she 'busted a move' was in her garden and caused a sudden contraction.  photo Fetus_zps39423f22.jpg

These foods have almost 0 calories. It's also why you're still hungry half an hour later.

Where's the protein??

The “Amazon Lady” (Lady designating her gender not her nature) wants you to eat your vegetables while she and odumbo steal you steak and other goodies.

She is one piece of work in that photo with her legs spread out like Milley Cyrus. Who let the dog out is appropriate)!

ABSOLUTELY ZERO CLASS!

Stop telling us what to eat!! People already eat carrots and broccoli and eggplant.....and beans and peas and potatoes and celery and cauliflower and brussel sprouts and beets and squash and lettuce and tomatoes....etc.

Where has she been??

And eggplant?? That's pretty much an Italian food and a lot of people go yuk to the taste....unless it's well doctored.

Kids need a lot of calories.....age 9-13...1800 to 2400. One cup of the vegies Michelle is promoting is about 50 calories. In other words....kids will be starving...

The Worst Lady is insufferable. The thing should shut her considerable pie hole.
