Catching Up: Obama’s Wacky Organic Farm And Gordon’s DVD’s

‘Memba the deal where some environwackadoodles wanted an organic farm planted at the White House. Um, well, ya see

Sure, everybody talks about how marvelous organic vegetables are these days — but have they ever seen a tomato hornworm? Do you really want that kind of monster crawling over stuff you put in your mouth?

One person apparently does: Michelle Obama. She has vowed to defile the White House lawn by putting in an organic vegetable garden on the South grounds, near the fountain.

I wonder what the racoons will make of this. And, wanna bet that she gets some people to take care of it for her, and the veggies never make it into White House meals, except for one brief photo op? Is that too cynical?

OK, moving on, say, I wonder how Gordon Brown is doing with that marvelous, Dahling! gift of 25 DVDs from WalMart

Alas, when the PM settled down to begin watching them the other night, he found there was a problem.

The films only worked in DVD players made in North America and the words “wrong region” came up on his screen. Although he mournfully had to put the popcorn away, he is unlikely to jeopardise the special relationship – or “special partnership”, as we are now supposed to call it – by registering a complaint.

By the way, when Obama’s unlikely gift was disclosed, a reader emailed me to ask if Clueless was among the films. Funnily enough, it was not.

Nice to see that Brown, no matter what his faults might be, knows how to play the diplomicy game.Though it should be interesting to see what happens at the G20 summit, and how Obama is treated, and how Obamateur treats the other leaders. (via Hot Air)
