A while back I took this picture in a local gas station bathroom. With my job involving me driving a lot, I see a lot of graffiti. Most is call Susie/Bob for a good time, random "gang" stuff, I heart Lafonda. Every once in a while you will see the above, but what I enjoyed is that someone scratched out Bush and put Clinton. This country is divided down political lines right now and this little message says it all, in my opinion both are knuckleheads either one will go down in history as a great President. I don't think we have a non bottom feeding President since Kennedy and truthfully I'm not a Kennedy fan, but here is my thing. I wanted to cross out Clinton and put something like Van Buren, Taft, or Millard Fillmore.
Then I realized something, I don't really agree with graffiti, I also don't have a sharpie on me and finally will anyone get my joke. Over half will think Millard Fillmore is some guy in Fuquay Varina. "Hey ain't Millard that guy with the lazy eye in Fuquay?" I don't think most American's can name half of our 43 presidents. So my joke would have been wasted unless the random high school history teacher happens by. So hopefully in between surfing of porn, people will stop by and get the joke, or I get the random kid looking for research on a Van Buren and if so Van Buren had some awesome mutton chops and was the First Vice President to be elected President, the only other was George H. W. Bush (this Bush not the current one). Remember knowing is half the battle. GO G.I. JOE!
