    “Michelle, don’t fire me from this right now, but some people look like animals. Is that rude? I look like a bird, I look like a bird. So can I be mad if someone called me Toucan Sam?”

    She was. I think she was a late comer to that show as the step daughter of one of the characters when she got married. She also famously came out recently as being gay.

    The ones who keep displaying offense at Michelle's face being compared to a cast member in the Planet of the Apes apparently think Michelle resembles an ape, hence the outrage. I don't think she looks any more like a cast member in Planet of the Apes, personally.

    When she doesn't look peeved, which she so often does, I think Michelle Obama's face is very pretty.

    I thought there might be something to this, so I went and searched some images.. I don't see it. But everyone can see something different.

    Um... all humans are apes. It is offensive when used to belittle someone, but I grow tired of people assuming it is awful to be compared to an animal. I think apes are beautiful...

    All you had to do was Google "Michelle Obama looking angry."

    Umm.. Think you misunderstood. You said you thought she was pretty when not peeved. I find her unattractive whether peeved or not. She is not pretty, to my eyes.

    This is true. It reminds my of my time as a Social Worker. Back then the county where I worked (heavy Democrat) started a program where the hiring of new Social Workers would focus on hiring "Spanish Speaking" Social Workers. That in itself was not a bad idea given that the majority of our clients were Hispanic and had a crazy disability that cause them to forget how to speak English when you asked them a question about the fathers of their children...

    Anyway, the reason I remember it was because the county took quotas to a whole new level.. they didn't just have a hiring quota for Spanish speakers, they had a quota for Spanish accents. I had a friend who was looking to get promoted through this program who spoke fluent Spanish but was rejected because she learned her Spanish in Spain which, versus the Mexican Spanish, is the linguistic equivalent Her Majesty's English versus Tennessee Hillbilly. The county argued that a native Mexican customer would likely not trust a Social Worker with a different accent than theirs.
