    Though hoping to quickly transition to the important topic at hand, Elmo too is slightly in awe over the First Lady’s amazingly toned biceps and playful fashion sense.

    With eyes popping and mouth agape, Elmo cannot help but admire this delicious dish, and the first lady Michelle Obama is loving it.

    Michelle Obama and Elmo pose with the leading celebrity vegetable impersonators – I don't think this is what the President means by "going green"...

    Mrs. Obama was surprised to find the seeds she sowed on the White House grounds, were mutants with faces, so she wouldn't eat them, but thought they would be perfect as characters on Sesame Street.

    Elmo: "And just remember kids, if you grow food organically like the First Lady is doing in the White House garden, you won't get vegetables with eyes like you will if you use genetically modified seeds!"
