Barack Obama's wife, Michelle Obama, was caught shopping for expensive tiaras at New York's famous Tiffany's jewelry store.
Smiling sheepishly as she pirouetted her six-foot frame, balancing an expensive Swarovski crystal headband, the putative First Lady said:
"Gotta get ready for the coronation. Everything must be perfect from head to toe so I'm starting with the head first!"
When asked by androgynous fashion reporter Hermie Frodite whether she had considered wearing the traditional Kenyan head wrap worn by most of her husband's female relatives in East Africa, Mrs. Obama accused him of "playing the race card again".
"Listen daahling", spluttered a highly-offended Hermie, "if you don't know the difference between a race card and a fashion card, you don't deserve to be co-President. I've just switched my vote to Hillary".
Number One Obama Groupie, Oprah Winfrey has scooped up hundreds of mini versions of the "Michelle Tiara". These will be handed out to her show audience as "thanks" for voting for her "guy".
