Radiation, radishes & ridicule for Mrs. Obama

June 16, 2009

obama garden

It looks like old-guard Soviets may be beaming radiation at the White House again. That is Rocky’s explanation for the rapid and bountiful vegetation growing in the new White House garden.

On March 19th, the New York Times reported that First Lady Michelle Obama would plant a White House vegetable garden. [Click here.]

Less than 90 days later, Mrs. O and the students from the Bancroft Elementary School were back at the White House harvesting waist-high crops.

Crops cannot grow this fast (except in the Amazon), so Rocky offers two more explanations for the improbable bounty:

1) Genetically modified crops. Seriously modified.
2) Global warming. In Washington, there is so much hot air that the growing season starts early.

Most likely the crops were planted fully grown — and it’s just a photo opportunity. This sure isn’t Eleanor Roosevelt’s Victory Garden !

    I think it was the plant stimulus package that Congress passed earlier this year.

    Plant more in ’44….err…’09!

    That’s a good one !!!

    Do you think steroids may be involved too?

    Steroids? Well we’d better arrange a congressional panel to investigate. Only subpoenas can possibly get to the root of plant gate.

    In light of your call on lumber along with the ability for the Whiet House to rapidly grow vegitation perhaps they should have planted pine instead of lettuce.

    I see a future for you as the personal CTA to the President. Seeing as how the government tends to over pay for things you may even be able to charge them 3&30%.

    You are too kind. Rest assured that there are quite a few losing positions in Rocky’s portfolio, but fortunately he did not write about them on his blog.

    As for being personal CTA to the president, that position is already occupied by Ms. Hillary — with her well known skills in trading cattle and hogs.
