This is hard! No idea about #1, Jackson, Eisenhower, Taft, and is that Ike again?

Fun game!

I can't believe I'm even doing this, as I always suck at knowing Presidents...

1) Jackson

2) Jefferson

3) Johnson

4) Coolidge or Wilson (I just can't decide, and I'm probably wrong anyway)

5) Ford

Mer, you have TWO correct! Wee haw!

Elizabeth, sadly, you have only ONE correct.

Interestingly, the two of you picked wildly different Presidents AND you did not get the same ones correct.

Jessey said...

PS Elizabeth: Coolidge and Wilson were both sort of *thinner* men...but you have the right time period. :)

I just know Taft was a fatty because of course he was from OH and related to our last governor. Interesting enough, do you know he is the other Pres buried in Arlington besides JFK? No idea why...prob because he was too much of a fatty to get back to OH.

Jessey said...

You know he was the fattest President we've ever had.
Also, he got stuck in a bathtub once, allegedly.

aight, the fact that i can remember enough names is good enough for me:
monroe or jackson
someone from the early 1900s
taft or cleveland
another from the early 1900s

as for taft trivia, at the Mission Inn in glorious riverside california they have a chair specifically built for taft on display; you can sit in it!

Actually, Taft popped into my mind as well, but I didn't want to be a copycat. Besides, I REALLY don't know my presidents. I am not ashamed to admit it. Nay, I flaunt it.

Jessey said...

OK here's the answers as promised...

A. Polk
B. Jefferson (Good job Elizabeth!)
C. Hoover
D. Taft, the fatty
E. Eisenhower, we all like Ike.

I had to get Jefferson. He was my mother's hero. I believe she has a shrine to him somewhere in the house.

Personally, I just like his money.

It's all about the Jeffersons baby.
