May 6, 2011 - Barack Obama says the first humerous thing he has said during his presidential tenure.

It shouldn't be surprising that it comes at someone else's expense, of course.

Wouldn’t think you’d want to get between Michelle and any type of food.

Wow. It may be true but what a thing for a husband to say about his wife in public.

No, the source article is written in Spanish - I'm sure as a tongue-in-cheek tip of the hat to Cinco de Mayo from Colby Hall.

Lard is a major ingredient in Mexican food, as the Wookie’s big lard ass proves.

never get between a Wookie and her larded up tamale’. That’s how horror movies start. (from another article, something like this, “...but she has the most toned arms...”) Hahaha.....

Such a group of Class-LESS folks like this that you cannot imagine.

The funny thing is that I was able to understand about 95% of the article as posted. (And I’m nowhere near fluent in Spanish.)

Barack, there’s nothing you can do to humanize Michelle,
or yourself. But I appreciate the fact that’s you’re trying hard.

I just picked a pic from the interwebs. I looks to me like a piece cut from a larger tamale. If not, no biggie.

I'm originally from Los Angeles. I've been eating tamales for over 50 years. I know what they are, I've even helped make them myself by hand on occasion. I've had them in the campos in rural central virginia.

In any tamal you have the cornmeal, you have the filling, you have the optional mole on top. This one was probably wrapped in a corn husk, cooked, taken out and cut.

Mabye not. Maybe it WAS a casserole. Same ingredients. YMMV.

My experience with Babelfish tells me that this is definitely not a Babelfish translation. It reads as an original. sd

I propose the phrase "between Michelle and a tamale" be introduced into the vernacular--to replace "between a rock and a hard place."

"Everything is going wrong for me these days. I'm between Michelle Obama and a tamale!"

If I said that about my wife and ANY kind of food, I’d become fish food faster than Bin Dying.

I must say that I really feel sorry for what Barry has to deal with when he gets home - lard-assed Wookie’s don’t take too well to being made fun of, much less in public.

“between Michelle and a tamale”

That’s great. I’m planning to use that as soon as an opportunity arises.

Yeah, that was the one that immediately came to mind. But I think there have been others, too.

I can’t speak Spanish, but I read and hear it almost perfectly.

At one time, I was an engineer traveling to Queretero on a
monthly basis staying for weeks at a time. I was eating lunch at the factory cafeteria, and the locals were telling jokes about some employee, and I got it, I laughed with them and they realized, I was here for them and understood their language, even though I was lousy speaking it.

Everyone was stunned that I got it. It was a cultural moment for everyone. We don’t want to transform them, we want them to figure out their path to freedom.

The kicker was, they all wanted the same freedoms America offered. They are the young nationals supporting freedom in Mexico. I felt for them. They are fighting a HUGE battle, much worse than we are.

There is a side of Mexico people don’t know about, the patriots. Only they are a small, a tiny minority. That’s the pity, but, they’re out there, struggling to apply our freedoms to their country. They are good people. I’m glad I got to know them.
