On Monday, September 21, 2009, President Barack Obama made an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman. His visit resulted in a more serious interview than you would usually expect from Letterman, but the two men also found a little time to laugh.
Before Obama took the stage, an audience member informed Letterman that she had a very unique item with her: a potato shaped like a heart. The woman was very proud of her unusual potato, and excited to be given the spotlight on national television. This moment soon passed, and the veteran talk show host brought things right back on track.
