See Obama Crack an Uncomfortable Joke About Michelle's Eating

"You do not want to be between Michelle and a tamale."

This one might leave President Obama in the dog house for a while.

During a speech celebrating Cinco de Mayo yesterday, the president decided to deliver what appeared to be an unplanned joke. That's fine. The only problem is it came at the expense of his wife Michelle who was standing right next to him. And it had to do with her eating habits. Yeah, it's as cringe-worthy as it sounds.

The president said that Michelle's favorite food is Mexican, and that "you do not want to be between Michelle and a tamale." The crowd let out an uneasy chuckle, while some even uttered "Oooo." Michelle shot a steely look at her husband, who eventually threw up his hands. You can watch it below at the three-minute mark:

While the video comes from Gawker, Colby Hall over at Mediaite probably covered the story in the cleverest way. His story is written entirely in Spanish.
