Before the internet age, it was only politicians that had strange details about them recorded indefinitely. Here are some of the greats from some of the greats:
George Washington loved his pets. Some of his favorites included dogs named Drunkard, Tipsy, Vulcan and Sweetlips. SWEETLIPS.
Thomas Jefferson's wine cellar was 17 ½ feet long, 15 feet wide, and 10 feet high. Tommyboy really really really liked wine.
Theodore Roosevelt was shot during a speech in Milwaukee. "I don’t know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot," he told the audience. "I give you my word, I do not care a rap about being shot; not a rap." He finished his 90 minute speech with bullet lodged in his chest. Not giving a rap. Like a boss.
Abraham Lincoln once gave us this wisdom: "No matter how much cats fight, there always seems to be plenty of kittens."
And with that, you have the glory of Mt. Rushmore. Happy Election Day, America!
Ladies & Gentlemen, please give a warm welcome to the newest member of the Freaker Family... Mt. Crushmore!
