In honor of this most wonderful of holidays celebrating dead white guys, I'm going to tell some facts (because it's the only day where it's socially acceptable to do so. ....Although that never stops me the other 364 days, so...) HERE WE GO:

Teddy Roosevelt hated vulgar jokes and he would walk away in the middle of a story if he thought it was going to get dirty.

Calvin Coolidge liked to wear underwear that was too big for him.

James Buchanan had one eye that was nearsighted and another that was farsighted—he would close one eye and tilt his head depending on what he was looking at.

Benjamin Harrison had his name misspelled on the program for his commencement, where he was giving the main address.

Taft’s parents had hoped he was a girl.

John Adams loved Shakespeare so much that when he went to Shakespeare’s house, he carved a sliver out of the wood form a chair.

George Washington died while taking his own pulse.

JFK lost his virginity at age 17 (which is a bit late if you think about his reputation) in a Harlem brothel.

Abraham Lincoln was so good at reading/reciting Shakespeare, people swore he’d missed his calling and ought to have been an actor.

I hope y'all have the most AMAZING Presidents Day EVER. I'm going to carry my giant cardboard cutout of Lincoln all day tomorrow, so that's exciting. MAYBE I'LL DANCE WITH HIM AT DINNER AND DANCING.
