For all you history buffs out there, the following is an excerpt from "Team of Rivals" by: Doris Kearns Goodwin:
One of Lincoln's favorite anecdotes sprang from the early days just after the Revolution. War hero Ethan Allen "had occasion to visit England," where he was subjected to considerable teasing banter. The British would make "fun of the Americans and General Washington in particular and one day they got a picture of General Washington" and displayed it prominently in the outhouse so Mr. Allen could not miss it. When he made no mention of it, they finally asked him if he had seen the Washington picture. Mr. Allen said he thought that is was a very appropriate [place] for an Englishman to keep it. When they asked why, Mr. Allen said, "there is Nothing that Will Make an Englishman Sh*t So quick as the Sight of General Washington."
