Ok, just stick with me, you guys.  iCarly is a good ass show. Seriously, everyone who’s ever seen it enjoys it.  Fans of the show that I know personally include my father, my boyfriend, my roommate’s nephew, and a 400 pound man I met at a party one time who drank a pint of whiskey while we enjoyed Nickelodeon together.  If you haven’t already, just give it a chance, all right?  Thank you.

Anyway, I’ve talked about this show for a hot second before, but now that the First Lady is involved, it’s time to get serious. Here’s the touching story of the origins of Michelle Obama’s episode:

Michelle Obama taped a special appearance for the hit series iCarly on Monday to help raise awareness to Joining Forces, an initiative that supports and honors U.S. military families. Executive producer Dan Schneider reportedly wrote the episode just for Obama and Joining Forces.

In the episode, Carly’s (Miranda Cosgrove) two best friends break some rules to set up a web chat so Carly can speak to her dad, who’s serving overseas. The first lady, who hears about the girls’ efforts, then comes to talk to them about the importance of connecting soldiers with their families.

The episode is set to air in January.

Of course I love Michelle Obama, and obviously I have strong feelings for iCarly, so I imagine that come January, I’ll be pleased as punch on so very many levels.  Will any of you be feeling the same way?
