This one is more like “awesome places to read.” On the second floor of the White House is a room called “the family kitchen.” It’s a small little suburban looking kitchen, used as a sitting room for guests or when the family in the White House just wants to whip themselves up something without all the big to-do of being the First Family. It’s like a little room where the President can pretend he (or she, sometime soon) is just an average schmo. Here’s Ford eating breakfast and reading the paper in the Family Kitchen.

I’m still really upset and angry. He did it once, the camera happened to be on him, he did it once and I think it’s the funniest joke that’s ever been on our show. - Michael Schur (x)

Love this.
