Who doesn't like their deep fried lard with a side of hope? Hope not just that it's magically calorie free, but that the future of America is bright and full of promise? Well presumably that's exactly what the producers of Paula's Party
are banking on; for the September 20 episode of the show, Paula's very special guest will be none other than Michelle Obama! According to the Village Voice
, Mrs. Future First Lady (it's happening, or else I'm blowing things up!) will team up with everyone's favorite drunk Southern cook, learn the importance of frying things (seriously!), share anecdotes about the first meal she ever cooked for Barack, and wrassle up a big pot of Yes We Can chili courtesy of Mr. Future President's (what?) own well-guarded recipe.
