Do As We Say, Not As We Do #928

What was the First Lady (you know, the ones that just told Americans to stop eating the junk food) serving yesterday at the White House Super Bowl Party?

Bratwurst, kielbasa, cheeseburgers, deep-dish pizza, buffalo wings, German potato salad, twice-baked potatoes, potato chips, pretzels, dip and a mystery salad.
Hinterland Pale Ale or Amber Ale, brewed in Wisconsin. Yuengling lager or light, brewed in Pennsylvania and White House honey ale. There was also ice cream. (source)

So, I wasted about 10 minutes of my life and calculated how many calories guests would imbibe of they sampled all the offerings and have ONE beer (we won't even get into salt content):

2970 calories.

A person's entire caloric intake for the day should be somewhere around 2000 calories and this was almost 3,000 for one party.

Sheesh Michelle.

This is what happens when you presume to tell others how to live their lives...it makes yours fair game to be under the microscope.

(Did you know the new online rumor is that Shelley is preggers?) <-which I only bring to your attention because I found it amusing, not because I believe it has an iota of truth...
