If Michelle Obama personally told you to eat your vegetables, would you do it? The first lady has done just that to Jay Leno, host of "The Tonight Show." She'll be appearing on the show on Jan. 31. A few days ago, she wrote the above tweet on the Let's Move twitter account.


You can tell it came directly from Mrs. Obama and not from one of her staff because there's an "-mo" on the end. (If her initials aren't at the end of a tweet, it was written by one of her staff.)


Why is she behaving like such a mom to the grown Leno? Obama Foodorama reports that Leno has been very vocal about his dislike of vegetables, and six years ago claimed that he hasn't had one since 1969.


Leno has not responded, at least through Twitter, to Obama's mom-like "we'll see about that" threat, but I have a feeling he'll be eating something green Tuesday night on "The Tonight Show." How about you?
