So here is a picture of the first lady of the United States, a rare photo in that it was not released to the media by her official photographer who likes to make sure she is gently stuffed into her clothing. Is Michelle Obama fat? Obviously that is a subjective question which depends on your frame of reference.

In her carefully choreographed public persona, we know that the first lady has promoted healthy eating to the American public by assuming the role of a nagging Big Mother, an Orwellian correlative to Big Brother. In private something else appears to be going on entirely. In this picture, Michelle Obama appears to be in the middle of eating a pound of butter or cheese.
