"We were surprised, but then again we weren't," said White House spokesman Tad Strange. "Obviously we're a high profile target. Someone obviously likes us."
The crop circle was small, only several yards across. It covered the wheat, corn and some of the soy beans, but displayed all of the characteristics of other crop circles. DNA tests are underway to determine if the crop circle modified the genetic material in the plants, as has been the case elsewhere. If so, the White House may offer the plants to companies such as Monsanto for genetic testing.
"We sort of laughed at it, you know. It's kind of cute, in a way," said Strange. "We have our own little crop circle."
"The Obama girls were thrilled," he continued. "Every morning they get up all excited, wondering if today there's a new crop circle."
