If you missed the show (or Michelle’s insane arms), allow me to fill you in. The first lady beat Ellen in a push up contest. As if losing on her own show wasn’t enough, a joke twitter war ensued.
Elsewhere on twitter, what we can assume about people when they swear, tails for humans now available and Megan Amram is really sore about not getting a blue check mark.

Michelle Obama tweeted a birthday shoutout to Jimmy Fallon. She said she forgot to get him a formal present but instead invited him to a sack race. Sounds fun, hope it’s on the White House lawn.
In other twitter news, the new coolest way to ask for chapstick, Halloween costumes that double as work uniforms, and fashion advice from Women’s Humor.

Michelle Obama’s speech on behalf of the president last night was an unqualified success — it was moving, funny, inspiring and genuine. The Washington Post‘s camera captured many convention-goers applauding, nodding, and smiling along with the First Lady’s words. But out of the countless reaction shots in the 25-minute speech, very few of them came from men.

I thought things were going well for first lady Michelle Obama, who has done a fine job guest editing iVillage this week, until I stumbled upon a Spanish magazine cover of her topless. The image in which she’s photoshopped is also of a former French slave.

Of one thing I’m certain: the world does not need one more “Fifty Shades” reader, so it’s quite a relief that first lady Michelle Obama hasn’t been leafing through the pages of E.L. James’s wildly popular erotica.

Most young professionals gripe that there’s no time to exercise. There is, though. Just ask first lady Michelle Obama, who often rises at 4:30 a.m. to break a sweat.
The iVillage guest editor told the publication that she gets up before five during the school-year to squeeze in a work out before preparing her two children for their school day.

President Barack Obama’s first ever kiss with wife Michelle sounds more like the first kiss between two teenagers at the beginning of their relationship. That makes the smooch story all the more adorable. What’s even better is that the story of the first couple’s very first peck has just been commemorated on a plaque outside a Chicago ice cream shop, where the spark-flying incident took place many years ago.

“Women have come a long way.” How’s that for the understatement of the century? Less than 100 years ago we couldn’t even vote in the U.S., and don’t get me started on jobs and education. The good news is powerful ladies have made great strides and continue to make epic progress. Today, the fist lady reminded everyone to exercise their right to vote. You see these powerful ladies I’m talking about?
