What If Michelle Obama Grew Fifty Feet Overnight?
Ha ha, no, I don't mean "What if Michelle Obama Sprouted 25 New Pairs of Feet, With 250 New Toes and Everything." Are you listening to yourself? That would be ridiculous. I'm talking about something more prosaic, like all of a sudden everyone wakes up and it turns out that the First Lady is, like, 55 feet tall and, what, eleven inches? Wouldn't that be something? What adventures she would have! "Honey, let me take care of that congressional impasse for you." SQUISH. "Ohhhh, sorry, I didn't see Mike Lee there." How would you react? Would you be masturbating furiously along with the folks at amaz0ns.com (NSFW, probably. I didn't linger very long), or would you have more practical concerns, such as the unavailability of totally cute Junya Watanabe cardigans in XXXXXXXXL? Some people would HATE it, because I don't know if you've ever noticed, but some people have strong feelings about Michelle! Obviously, reactions would be all over the map.

So I guess what we've learned in this exercise in speculative fiction is that... well, that media coverage of a 55' 11" Michelle Obama wouldn't be much different from any other day. How do you think other people would react?
