A(nother) gay conversation with myself

" />

(Above: a daguerreotype of President James Knox Polk by Matthew Brady)

Me1: Well, hello, 11th president of the United States, James Knox Polk.
Me2: Is that... a mullet?
Me1: I always thought they were a 90's thing, and not a 19th century thing.
Me2: What did he say to his barber? "I want it presidential in the front, but party in the back"?
Me1: Maybe that was his campaign slogan!
Me2: That sounds like something a power bottom who works in the corporate world would say. Besides, he doesn't look like the partying type. At least not in this photo.
Me1: Ooof. No, no he doesn't.
Me2: I wonder if he thinks that dead-eyed vacant stare makes him look deep, because, no.
Me1: Seriously, he is giving off serial killer vibes.
Me2: I wonder what the photographer said to him when he posed for this.
Me1: "Look like you're a character in an Edgar Allan Poe story" is my guess.
Me2: This is just all wrong.
Me1: HEY! Maybe we could start a rumor that, after his presidency, Polk traveled to England and became Jack the Ripper.
Me2: That... honestly, that wouldn't be the craziest Ripper theory out there.
Me1: Oh wait, he died in 1849. Jack the Ripper was active in the 1880s.
Me2: Please. Facts don't stop conspiracy theories. Clearly, when he "died", he was actually cryogenically frozen, only to be revived in the 1880s. This experience totally unhinged him, and he became the Ripper. See... easy.
Me1: Huh. Sounds good! I'm in! I mean, this isn't any crazier than conspiracy theories people actually believe.
Me2: So... we're running with it?
Me1: Sure!

Love it! - I'll buy it! ;-)
Thank you.

I mean, I still have to work out the details, but the conspiracy theory is off to a good start
"Facts don't stop conspiracy theories."

And that's a fact XD
Enjoyed this!
Thank you!
Hilarious 😆!
Thank you!
Polk couldn't have been a power bottom, our first power bottom President was Truman.

The Buck Stops here actually referred to Thomas "Buck" Candelario.
*snorts* I definitely got a laugh. I hadn't seen the mullet before hahah.
Once I saw it, I couldn't unsee it, and then... this happened.
I love your gay conversations with yourself! I think perhaps you could market this idea. ;)

Aw, thank you!
This is funny! I especially liked your line about facts not stopping conspiracy theories.
Thank you.

And it's true. Conspiracy theories and facts just don't mix.
LOL!

"Please. Facts don't stop conspiracy theories."

Oh yeah! Love this line!

Very entertaining!
Thank you!
When George Washington warned against political parties, really he was talking about a hairstyle!
The more you know...
ok now I cannot not see a mullet...
That was my reaction.

I've seen this photo before I don't know how many times, and, then, suddenly "Wait... is that a mullet?"

And then the above happened.
Okay, I lol’d. Very creative!
Thank you!
I LOVE IT!
Thank you!
Your conversations with yourself always crack me up. :D

Me2: I wonder if he thinks that dead-eyed vacant stare makes him look deep, because, no.
Me1: Seriously, he is giving off serial killer vibes.

Hahahaha! If he ever gets up out of that chair, look out!
Clearly the whole "I'm too lazy to move" thing is act meant to lull us into a false sense of security.
This was hilarious! I loved "presidential in the front, but party in the back" - what part of your brain did that come from? Also, I have never seen an imaginary dialog with Polk before. Lots of credit for that.
I don't know where that came from. I'm working on something with the presidents right now, and I've seen that photo a bunch of times, and then it just struck me that that resembles a mullet, and I was off.
"I want it presidential in the front, but party in the back?"

Hahaha! Brilliant!
Thank you!
