If you were about to talk to President Obama and suggest that he try adding fresh peas to guacamole, don't. The Twitterverse learned this when someone asked Obama what he thought about a recipe The New York Times published that suggested adding fresh peas. The recipe drew a lot of rotten tomatoes from average folks, and someone asked Obama what he thought.
#AskPOTUS Do you agree with the @nytimes about putting peas in guacamole? If yes, why?

It came up during the president's healthcare Q & A on Twitter, writes The Associated Press — "It turns out, the president is a traditionalist when it comes to his guac."
