Michelle Obama and Elmo are the best of friends – the First Lady has appeared repeatedly on Sesame Street to tout her health and exercise initiative, Let’s Move. Now Elmo will go visit the First Lady at the White House on Wednesday to help harvest the White House garden.
That’s the same White House garden that sadly went unattended during the government shutdown, although apparently the Muppets could have been called for the reaping. Schoolchildren will show up to help, including kids from DC, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.
