So, it's Presidents' Day weekend.
Advertisements [?]

And, as I googled for images of U.S. Presidents, I learned something very interesting. Many of the photos at / have been doctored to make the Presidents seem younger, thinner and/or better looking.

Several versions of the same portrait may come up when you google. In almost every case, the version on the government website is more flattering than the others.

Just another way our government uses our tax dollars to fool us. Suckas!

And that's without reading the bios on the site. Hell, if I can't trust the photo, how can I trust the bio?
