Why are these men smiling???

Today’s post is just for fun… So, why are these guys all smiling?

I have a theory!

It is said that Mr. Nixon was a legendary poker player.  When he came home from World War II, he financed a car, a house and his first Congressional campaign with his poker winnings from his days in the Navy.  Later, when Mr. Eisenhower was president and Mr. Nixon was vice president, Mr. Eisenhower held a weekly poker game in the White House.

On one occasion, Mr. Nixon was invited to play with Ike and the boys…  After the Vice President cleaned them all out, he was not invited to play again.

Notice that Mr. Nixon is playing cards and Ike isn’t?

OK, we know why those two are smiling!  Obviously the other guys don’t know the story…

Or… I guess they could all be enjoying Mr. Lincoln’s jokes.

Please feel free to leave your guesses!

Maybe we should have a poll!

  1. It looks like Nixon’s cards are getting peeked at.

    So why are they laughing? Lincoln must have have told a joke.
