Look! It’s the Dancing Presidents!

January 22, 2009

Blog Guy, I’m hoping you can help me. I collect photos of dancing U.S. Presidents.

Then I doubt if anyone can help you.

My collection begins with a priceless Daguerreotype of Zachary Taylor doing a polka in 1849, and includes a never-published photo of Dwight Eisenhower doing the Twist.

Awesome! You don’t have that rumored photo of Jimmy Carter on a disco floor, do you?

Yep, that’s mine. But I’m missing the last three presidents because of some unpleasantness, and I thought you might help me with those.

Sure. Do you think you’d want to exhibit your collection at my popular Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop?

Let me think about it. I get out in six years, or maybe earlier with good behavior.

Help others! Join the Oddly Enough blog network!
