I entered a contest to celebrate the release of a new book (titled "Beards of our Forefathers") and so I made a set of US presidents who wore beards. Except Garfield, because Garfield isn't funny.

Each president is approx. 3 inches tall, and their heads are about the size of a penny or nickel.

Martin Van Buren (not really a beard, but I like his mutton chops!)


Abraham Lincoln


Rutherford Hayes


Benjamin Harrison


Ulysses Grant

Thanks everyone! I'm not sure that the contest runner wants the originals or if he just wants the pictures... if he doesn't want the originals, I'm glad to send them to a good home. If any of you are history buffs, let me know and I'll drop them in the mail. Smiley

These are crazy funny.  What a rare talent to take such an excrutiatingly boring subject and turn it into something really funny.  The dialog bubbles are hysterical.
