A Two-Faced Son-Of-A-Gun

Even Honest Abe Lincoln admitted himself that he wasn't all that pretty, But you'll be hard-pressed to find a president who was more witty! During debates, Stephen Douglas called him a two-faced son-of-a-gun. Lincoln replied, "If I had another face, do you think I would wear this one?" Robert L.

A face of historic distinction. I hope his image won't see extinction.

Robert - If I ever need a laugh, all I have to do is read one of your poems. I too wish I had another face, so I wouldn't have to wear the same one everyday. You mad my day.... Lucilla

Yes, I remember reading that famous quote of his. Abe is my HERO. There will never be another like him.
