Quoted: President Obama trash-talks Vegemite
"So it's like a quasi-vegetable-byproduct paste that you smear on your toast for breakfast. Sounds good, doesn't it?"
-- President Obama dissing the Down Under delicacy Vegemite, right in front of Australia PM Julia Gillard during a joint visit to a classroom at Arlington's Wakefield High School. "It's horrible," he declared, in case you missed the sarcasm above. POTUS was in quite the jocular mood: When the AP History students chimed in to praise their teacher, he laughed, "Look at all these folks sucking up to her. Good grief."
