First Ladies Posing With Ridiculous Things

The main job of a first lady is to pose for pictures with random objects. At least that what it seems like.

1. Michelle Obama and a dirty potato


2. Michelle Obama and Big Bird

3. Laura Bush with a bobblehead of herself

4. Laura Bush and Big Bird


5. Barbara Bush with Red Sox pitcher Kurt Shilling

6. Barbara Bush with a basketball spinning on her finger

7. Nancy Reagan with Mr. T in a Santa suit

Ultimate WTF.

8. Nancy Reagan with Alf

9. Nancy Reagan with a goose shaped jello mold

10. Betty Ford with Liza Minelli and Liz Taylor

I’d love to be a fly in the martini glass of this crew.

11. Betty Ford (center) with a modern dance troupe

12. Pat Nixon and Big Bird (again)

13. Lady Bird Johnson with 4 empty chairs

14. Lady Bird Johnson with a movie camera

15. Jackie Kennedy with a typewriter. This is as ridiculous as she’d get.

I know this isn’t really ridiculous, but it’s as crazy as she got. The woman would NOT pose with any weird stuff or take an unflattering photo. That’s why she’s Jackie Kennedy and we’re not, I guess.

16. Mamie Eisenhower with a newspaper cake

I think Mamie is my favorite - she looks like she just got caught doing something she’s not supposed to in every photo.

17. Mamie Eisenhower and a giant floor buffer

18. Bess Truman with a giant painting of Harry

19. Eleanor Roosevelt with a can that is totally grossing her out

20. Eleanor Roosevelt with an figurine of FDR held by Frank Sinatra

21. Lou Henry Hoover on a donkey with a gun

22. Grace Coolidge with a Girl Scout cookie

23. Grace Coolidge with a raccoon

This is almost as weird as Nancy and Mr. T.

24. Florence Harding with parasol

25. Helen Taft with a movie camera

26. Edith Roosevelt and a dromedary
