“Funny story, Hillary. Yesterday I found a secret stash in one of the White House cabinets that they said hadn’t been used since you and Bill lived there….

“I mean, this was some twisted stuff! I’m talking about a 1.75 liter bottle of creme de menthe, an old VHS set of the entire “Yogi Bear” cartoon series, an ‘I’M WITH STUPID’ t-shirt, a case of Hostess Twinkies…”

HAITI-USA/“That’s SO embarrassing, Michelle! I thought we got rid of all that crap. Can you just toss it out? Except send the Twinkies to me. At my office, of course.”

“Sure thing, Hillary. Listen, you know that really nice scented White House soap? Do they like make us  finish it before we get a new bar?

“Are you kidding, Michelle? You can just keep hiding it in a drawer, and they replace it, up to three bars a day! And don’t even ask me how many White House towels we’ve got!”

“No way! You’re a BAD girl! I still can’t believe we get to use all the ketchup we want and they don’t even bill us! You can’t beat that with a stick!”

“Say Michelle, does that green light mean the microphone is off, or on?”

Oh my gosh Baz you almost gave me away! I’m sitting at my desk giggling like a maniac and people are wondering why. I had to make something up.

Very nice, Spinster, I like the way you think. I’m gonna go ahead and presume you got it exactly right.

I am surprised Michelle did not come across the box of Presidental cigars!

Gee, I thought they were talking about Rahm Emanuel naked in the shower. Wait, that was the conversation in my head…

Michelle: “I just farted.”

Hillary: “Me too!”

(Come on, it made the guys smile.)

Hillary: Did you see Sarkozy do that?
Michelle: I did!! Oh, but look, Carla with that musician guy… !!
Hillary: Guess, its mutual then!

@justCAM: LOL that was nice 😀

Well…It actually looks like Michelle made a rude joke so Hillary had to blush and hide her laughter… so ANY rude joke would do here 😉

I don’t get it. I thought your blogs were just fictional reinterpretations. This strikes me as oddly (enough) realistic.

I’m with you on this one, Bandage… I am very concerned about the hostess twinkies, especially as they provide a disloyal competition to Robert’s doughnuts! And, judging from the giggles in the pictures, they are equally effective. Beware, Robert, competition coming your way!

Michelle looks like she probably snorts when she laughs, Hilary is hiding her embarrassment.
