On The FLOTUS Pie

@PistolPackinMama @PistolPackinMama The usual standard of this feature is jokes about yogurt and online dating. And I like it! But she did something more ambitious here, and I thought it was funny, and I admire her taking a risk, especially in this pile-on environment.

On The FLOTUS Pie

So, between the comments on the amazing Hilary Mantel piece earlier and on this nice bit of satire, I guess literacy is over. It reminds me of the kerfuffle over the 2008 New Yorker cover that showed Michelle in black-power garb and Barack in shalwar khameez fist-bumping over the American flag burning in the Oval Office fireplace. That cover and this simple pie chart are a better indictment of the hateful ish the First Couple have to deal with than any number of earnest Internet comments. I have bangs, too, though, so I'm proud to have at least 20 percent in common with Michelle O.
