William Henry Harrison
“I am now President of these here United States of America..”
“Wrap up warm Willy! You know Washington can be cold in March.”
“My good man. I am fresh out of clean handkerchiefs. Wipe your nose on my coat!”
“I don't want to go.”
“There is nothing more destructive than the force of ligma...ligma balls”
William Henry Harrison (February 9, 1773 – April 4, 1841) was ninth president of the United States of America and is best known for having the shortest wiki article of all the United States presidents. There is not a lot to say, so we haven't.
- William Harrison's grandson, Benjamin Harrison became president in 1889. Guess we should mention that.
- That's the honest truth. Harrison was elected in November 1840 and sworn in as US President in March 1841. One month later Harrison was dead after catching a cold from a citizen sneezing all over him and then wiping his nose on the president's frock coat. It should have been curable but then no one knew much about germs and kleenex. Harrison was told to wrap up warm and not to touch strangers but he ignored advice, the stubborn silly old Whig. So he would have probably been a terrible president, done nothing except ride a horse round Washington and pestering the ladies. So lets move on shall we?
