It’s all part of the so-called “Drink Up” campaign.
My God. Didn’t first ladies used to do temperance? This is an outrage.
Oh, wait a second. She’s talking about water.
Thank God someone is on this. I was going to do it myself, given all the dehydrated people I bump into every day.
And I mean, literally bump into. They’re in stupor, having forgotten to bring their Dasani along to the office. It’s generally not talked about, but in Buffalo alone, three people last year, dazed from thirst, fell straight into open manholes and were never heard from again.
So First Lady Michelle Obama will trek to New York City Thursday to urge Americans to drink more water. And it’s not a moment too soon.
From the White House:
First Lady Michelle Obama will visit WAT-AHH!’s Taking Back the Streets exhibit at the New Museum in New York City. Taking Back the Streets is a celebration of street art in honor of Drink Up, the Partnership for Healthier America’s initiative that encourages all Americans to drink more water. This exhibit will use the visual arts to remind kids and parents that choosing to drink water is one of the best and easiest decisions we can make each and every day.
Who got to the first lady. Pepsi? Evian? Someone’s looking to fill trash dumps with lots of empty plastic bottles.
Where do you get this water stuff anyway? I’d better tune in. I’ve been subsisting on espresso and I’m thirsty.
She’ll also tape an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” And, of course, a fundraiser.
