After giving a speech at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia earlier today, President Obama and the First Lady made a surprise visit to a nearby farm. They ended up taking home a haul of "about 10 pumpkins," the Washington Post reports, included two white pumpkins, which are known as "full moon pumpkins." Now that the Obamas bought them, those white pumpkins are destined to become the Tickle Me Elmos of Halloween 2011.
