I am aware that Ben Franklin was never the president. It is also inaccurate that he froze to death at a bus stop. This information came to me in a dream.

Supplementary Fun Fact: The cliff that Theodore Roosevelt is hurling the flailing body of William McKinley from is on what he would later magnanimously name Mount McKinley, in honor of his fallen opponent.

The sentence "James K. Polk was nine feet tall" has been stuck in my mind for years. I like the cadence of it.

The facts about Ronald Reagan are all absolutely true. Why else do you think he will not die?

That thing about George Bush is just a little good-natured ribbing. He won't mind. I used to kid him all the time, back when we'd stay up 'til eight A.M. chasing waitresses, driving around the back roads, doing lines. He loves it! Don'tcha, G.W.? Come onnnnn! Dubya! Aybud, we used to call him. Ay, Bud! The Bushmeister! Ol' Mush-fer-Brains! Woof! Woof! Woof! Aaaaawwoooooooooooooooooo!
