It's nice to know that in a parallel universe, these are all correct.

Ah yes, that vaunted period from 1800 to 1850 when every single president was named Jeffrey. How quickly we forget.

Well, there's this.

I am a sucker for fake lists like this. For my money no one has done it better than Seth Morris as Bob Ducca on Comedy Death Ray. (His bit works way better with all the context of the sad sack Bob Ducca character, but whatever).

He squeezed one term in between "I'm Stickin' with You" and "Party Doll".

I didn't find this very funny, but the stereo audio on my laptop with its tiny little speakers was amazing. It sounded like it was coming from behind me, and inside my head at the same time. Rarely does audio sound this cool on my laptop, so thanks for that.

How'd they do that, anyway?

I just mush the last few presidents into one and call them George Clinton. I know, wishful thinking.

A bunch of my buddies at work saw this and can't stop laughing and joking about it. Maybe it's because we live in Southern California and have all been to Disneyland a million times, but someone walking into the room and announcing "Buddy Knox" is enough to send us all into fits.

There's a new nickname for everyone I know in that list. It's gonna be awesome. Hint: a lot of y'all who know me in real life are all gonna be called Jeffrey now.

I liked all the Jeffereys in a row.

I laughed more than I expected to.

You know, if Microsoft/Google hired comedians I'm sure one of their interview questions would be just this, give the Presidents new funny names. Then they hire the ones that recognize there is no comedic way to improve 'Rutherford B. Hayes'.

How different would the world be if we had actually had Tex O'keefe as a president?

Just think about it is all I am saying.

As a friend of mine said to mean when I showed him this video, "See, this is what happens when you hack MISSINGNO into your Presidential Library".

In my personal opinion This Daily Show list of Britain's fallen soldiers was quite funny.
