Florida’s Trying to Steal Illinois’ State Slogan and We Can’t Even
Are you ready for a history lesson?
Four score and 208 years ago, Abraham Lincoln was born in a log cabin in Hardin, Kentucky.
Most Americans think, or used to think, that Lincoln was born in Springfield, but it wasn't until he was 21 that he actually moved to Illinois and worked as a shopkeeper, postmaster and a general store owner before becoming a lawyer and eventually the president of the United States.
That's pretty much all you need to know to understand why this t-shirt from BirdFurTees.com makes no sense at all.
The product description legit says,
"Good old Honest Abe wouldn't be the man he was without the influence of the kind, warmhearted, progressive people of his home state Florida."
Ummm..ex-squeeze-me? No. Just take this t-shirt and stick it where the sun doesn't shine. Wait....
