Barack Obama clearly has quite the sweet tooth.
Obama took a moment on Monday to praise retiring White House pastry chef Bill Yosses, a.k.a. the Crustmaster, for being "a man who has made life at the White House very sweet." Then he joked about the pies being baked with crack. Scroll to 4:50 in the above video to watch.
"I don't know what he does, whether he puts crack in them," Obama quipped, acknowledging his uncontrollable cravings for Yosses' pies. He then paused for a brief moment, as though suddenly realizing that he had made a joke about crack in the White House.
First lady Michelle Obama quickly came to the rescue. "No, he doesn't," she clarified to the snickering crowd. "There is no crack in our pies."
Obama admitted Yosses' pies affected his cholesterol during his first months in the White House. "I thought, it's the pie! It's the pie!" Obama said, when his cholesterol "shot up" after his first physical. "So we had to establish a really firm rule about no pie during the week."
Needless to say, Yosses' retirement might be a healthy choice.
