Barack Obama 'cracks' joke about addictive White House pies
Unimpressed First Lady Michelle Obama didn't see the funny side
President Barack Obama paid the ultimate compliment to a White House chef by claiming his delicious pies are so addictive, he "puts crack in them".
Speaking at an LGBT event on Monday, the president praised pastry chef Bill Yosses for his baking skills and jokingly added: "We call Bill the "Crustmaster' because his pies.... I don't know what he does, whether he puts crack in them..."
However, a straight-faced Michelle Obama had no appetite for her husband's crack jokes and immediately told reporters: "No he doesn't, there is no crack in our pies."
But Mr Obama didn't stop there. He went on to say his cholesterol went though the roof after his first year at the White House and had to stage an intervention to keep the Crustmaster and his pies away.
"My cholesterol shot up and the doctor was like, what happened, you had this really low cholesterol, you were so healthy, like what happened?
"And I thought, it's the pie! It's the pie! So we had to establish like a really firm rule about no pie during the week," he added as the crowd laughed.
Describing his decision to leave the White House as "bittersweet", Mr Yosses is moving to New York to work on a new project teaching children and adults about healthier eating habits.
And he certainly leaves some sweet memories behind.
