When first lady Michelle Obama comes home to Chicago next Tuesday, a group photo with her at a campaign fundraiser won’t come cheap.

The asking price for a ticket to a "family photo reception" is $10,000, according to an invitation to the event. The invitation specifies that there may be a maximum of six guests in the photo.

Bubba and Hillary used to do the same thing. Every breath they drew was a fundraising opportunity.

Look at the positive side, she'd make you look thin standing next to her.

I would rather go back to 1961 and pay 3 million to have my pic taken with Jackie Kennedy.

A lesser person might say “Dem photos gosta be LARGE format HASSLEBLAD STUFF, woman, an’ don’t you wear no “MALCOLM X” T-shirt or Marine One gonna land on you fat ass,” which I would deem inappropriate and disrespectful.

Wookie’s are pretty rare, but $10K does seem high.

Community activism comes with a price.

I'm certain there are lots of "community activists" out there willing to fork over $10,000 of your money to have their picture taken with Michelle.

!0,000 bucks!!! If you REALLY need a picture of you and Moochelle standing together, wouldn’t it be cheaper to buy a copy of Photoshop?

I remember back in the early seventies when our ship was in Naples Italy, there was an ugly toothless obese street hooker we named “Humpty Dumpty” (she sat a lot on the walls that bordered the sidewalks).

She made a fairly decent living not through turning tricks but by posing naked for sailors paying to take her picture.

The mischievous swabs would then get her to write on the photo something like,” With all of my love I await our next embrace, my darling Joe (or Ted Fred George—whatever).”
“Joe” would be the buddy you are playing a joke on when you tack up the picture for all to see back on the ship.

Can't remember what the pictures cost—but it weren’t no 10K.

If that photo is of Michelle Obama in an orange jumpsuit with Department of Corrections on it, I will consider it.
