Presidents Gone Wild! [Apr. 6th, 2009|11:58 pm]
I just took some stupid Facebook quiz that identifies what president you are and I got Chester A. Arthur.

The thing is I love Chester A Arthur! I even sought out his statue in Madison Square Park a few days ago when I was in NYC. (Poor Mark who had to come with me.) Arthur stood up to the Custom House graft of fellow Madison Square Park statue Roscoe Conkling. Plus, he has awesome mutton chops.

My quiz answers indicated that I'm compatible with Franklin Pierce. Yay! He's the hottest president ever. Seriously. (He also had the lamest nickname ever - Handsome Frank.) The other day with friends I announced my picks for hottest president in 50 year increments.

<1800 Washington (by default)
1800-1850 Jefferson
1850-1900 Pierce
1900-1950 Wilson
1950-2000 Kennedy
>2000 Obama

What are your picks?

Presidential Adjectives

Yeah, you gotta love good Taft stories. I was just reading a presidential trivia book and there were certain adjectives used in questions to help you towards the correct answer. These adjectives were used *repeatedly*. They included:

Portly/Rotund = Taft and on occasion, Cleveland
Chubby = John Adams
Quiet = Coolidge ("Silent Cal")
Short = Madison
Bespectacled = Truman
Scholarly = Wilson
Grinning = Carter

I think they should have used "Be-Mulleted" for Polk. Behold the only presidential mullet!:
