More about the Lincoln half of LunarLincoln. Why Abe? Why not LunarTaft? Who has his own huuuuge rocket seat, for his impressively large posterior. Or LunarHarrison, who only get’s to be king of the moon for 32 days because he refused to wear a full spacesuit in order to “look cool” and catches a space-cold. Or LunarJackson, who takes 100,000 lunar aborigines on a death march. That guy, why the hell is he on our money, what a douche.
Aside from my general disdain for Andrew Jackson (Louisiana Purchase excepted), Abraham Lincoln was selected not only for his wonderfully alliterative name, and the fact that he has a bad ass line of cars named after him, but because he was such a complex and impressive president. Not as likeable back then, as he is today, Lincoln faced daunting challenges and rose to the occasion on many fronts.
On a lighter note, when putting together the graphics for our website, we discovered older Lincoln is not suited to the space-look. A bit too grizzled once placed in a helmet, younger Lincoln made a much better/friendlier representative for our company. For your enjoyment, some initial versions can be found to the left.
