A few years ago I went on a Brooklyn pizza bus tour (obviously, moving on) and one of the stops was to Grimaldi’s in Dumbo which always has a huge line outside, and the pizza tour guide explained that the only person ever allowed to cut the line was Michelle Obama, who had recently been there with Sasha and Malia. I think this was BS both because WE were allowed to cut the line simply by being on this bus tour, and because I doubt George Clooney’s personal assistant would be allowed to keep his or her job if he or she could not arrange for George Clooney to cut the line at Grimaldi’s, for example, but if we are to believe this anecdote about Michelle Obama: WHAT A TREAT! Grimaldi’s pizza, the best arms in America, married to that sweet, beautiful President of the United States, being so smart and popular and beautiful, girlfriends with Beyonce, what more could a person ask for that everyone else in America wants? OH, TV IN ADVANCE TOO? From Entertainment Wise:

She might be busy as the First Lady of America but it appears that Michelle Obama still has time to tune into hit ITV period drama, Downton Abbey.

In fact, Michelle is such a fan of the show that she reportedly begged the bosses of the show to send over the DVDs of series three, which has already aired in the UK but is due to broadcast in the US early next year.

An insider told The Sun: “We know it’s very popular in America as it’s so quintessentially British. We’d heard the Obamas liked to watch it but we were very surprised when someone from the First Lady’s office got in touch asking for the series.

“They were very polite and we were more than happy to sort out some DVDs for them to send over. Obviously we hope they keep the spoilers to themselves as our US fans may not know about… well, you know what!”

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT? Legal viewing of Downton Abbey series three?! JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE THE FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA? (JK. Totally fine enough reason to be able to get DVD copies of Downton Abbey S3. CALL ME, MICHELLE!) What else does Michelle Obama get that everybody else wants, do you think? Does she have a Wii U? Is Community back on Thursday nights on NBC in the White House? (Does anyone want those things?) (What do humans want?) Do all the water fountains have champagne in them, but only for Michelle? Can she get ready in the morning just by blinking her eyes like Sabrina the Teenage Witch did? Does she have a Clueless closet? Is she winning her fantasy sports league without even having tried? WHAT DO YOU THINK?!

  1. NooooooOO! Watchout that dagnabbbit link has a huge Downton Abbey spoiler ! Why do they say ‘there’s a huge spoiler i hope no one talks about what you-know-what plot point’ and then in the very next paragraph go on to share the big horrible words of that spoiler! NOOOOOOOO!

    • I’m still trying to MIB erase the spoiler that was dropped on here awhile back. The technology still has some kinks in it though.

    • I generally don’t mind spoilers, as I’ll still watch a show even if I know what’s going to happen. But when I read the spoiler on the link, I was all…WHAT?!!!

    • The best part is how in the paragraph before the spoiler, someone is quoted as saying, “Obviously we hope they keep the spoilers to themselves as our US fans may not know about… well, you know what!” and then go on to clarify what that means, as though it were more likely we’d run into Michelle Obama and trick her into telling us the spoiler rather than read it on the internet (I mean, it was spoiled for me by looking at gifs on some Downton Abbey Tumblr page! The internet is everywhere!)

  15. Does Michelle have a bff that gets all the spillover awesomeness? No? Then I shall be her bff…as part of my civic duty.

    I did not know there is such a thing as a pizza bus tour. I can live without the bus part though. I call for a Videogum Pizza Crawl!

  16. Downton Abbey is quintessentially British? Well that’s a lorry full of horseshit.

  17. She thinks Breaking Bad was a great show, and she’s glad it ended the way it did.
