10 Fun (Untrue?) Things You Didn’t Know About George Washington

by Ken Layne

#11: Was actually Kenyan.Will this be the last President’s Day/George Washington/Sorta Lincoln holiday in America? Depends how the violent insurrections and crushing poverty and societal collapse go, over these next 12 months! So let’s remember our nation’s “First Dude” by compiling a listicle of 10 Sexy Tips To Drive George Washington Wild In Bed (“3: Somehow make him alive.”) or whatever, to honor the United States’ first “Warblogging President.” He crushed the blimey British like dried testicles under his manly boot heels, and that’s why we still put him on our most worthless piece of paper currency!

10. Lost all his teeth in a YouTube “teen cutting video” gone wrong.

9. Thanks to his long, bony middle finger (exactly like the nocturnal lemur known as the Aye-Aye), Colonel Washington was able to remove Benjamin Franklin’s gallstones through a tiny “keyhole incision,” thus inventing modern robotic-assisted surgery. (The finger was itself robotic, and built by David Bushnell, the same clever inventor who created “The Turtle,” America’s first war submarine.)

8. Co-composer (lyrics) of the classic sea shanty, “A Pirate’s Life For Me.” (Music by Robert Louis Stevenson.)

7. Lost his penis to the tomahawk of an Indian warrior in 1754 (video). For the remainder of his life, Washington used a painful “wooden dildo” in place of his original organ. But the method for successful ejaculation through a wooden dildo was still nearly three decades away, and Washington’s wife (Murtha Washington) died of melancholia because she could not give birth to her second husband’s children. (As salve for their sadness, the Washingtons purchased many negro slaves and beat them mercilessly.)

6. Washington did not know how to spell choose:

In order to legally keep slaves in the state of Pennsylvania, Washington could not hold them there for more than six months. In order to evade the spirit and letter of this law, he deliberately rotated his slaves, allowing none of them to stay in Philadelphia for more than the six months which would have given them their freedom. A 1788 law was meant to close this loophole and prevent slaveholders from doing as Washington did, but it was not enforced and the president deliberately engaged in law breaking.

He wrote to an aide, “In case it shall be found that any of my slaves may, or any of them shall attempt their freedom at the expiration of six months, it is my wish and desire that you should send the whole, or such part of them as Mrs. Washington may not chuse [sic] to keep, home – for although I do not think they would be benefited by the change, yet the idea of freedom might be too great a temptation for them to resist. … If upon taking good advice, it is found expedient to send them back to Virginia, I wish to have it accomplished under the pretext that may deceive both them and the public.”

5. Widely credited as the “Father of Modern Science Fiction.”

4. When not on horseback, glided around on a pair of early “Heely” rolling shoes of his own design.

3. Item three has been removed because it is a Masonic Sex-Rite Secret.

2. Homosexuality was completely limited to “smooth Asians,” despite the claims made in the controversial Washington biography by Edmund Morris, Dutch.

1. Invented “white rap.”

If George were still alive today he would say, "Remember that electoral college thing we made up when we were drunk? They're still using it!"

V572625694 February 21, 2011 at 1:29 pm

"And they've annexed virtually empty 'states' in the Western Territories and given them two Senators each!"

11. Actually crossed the Potomac to see the Kennedy Center Honors for Harry Belafonte.

chascates February 21, 2011 at 1:21 pm

He was also redheaded (in his youth, at least) so he was a potential Wonkette writer.

This is good news for Fare La Volpe.

donner_froh February 21, 2011 at 1:24 pm

"you should send the whole, or such part of them as Mrs. Washington may not chuse [sic] to keep,"

Given that George had a wooden, non-ejaculating penis (splinters–ouch) one doesn't need to ask which "part" of them that Mrs. Washington kept.

LionelHutzEsq February 21, 2011 at 1:28 pm

Ken, you forgot that George Washington was also the person who first floated the idea of Facebook to the Winklevoss twins.

Ken Layne February 21, 2011 at 1:33 pm

He also invented the "graphical user interface for a personal computing device" but foolishly signed a "work made for hire" contract.

Oh I remember that one. Transoms, wasn't it?

I thought that was Jefferson…

LionelHutzEsq February 21, 2011 at 1:46 pm

Jefferson was more commercially savvy, and produced all of his porn on VHS, following Ben Franklin's lead.

jus_wonderin February 21, 2011 at 1:59 pm

"following Ben Franklin's lead"

Jefferson was submissive???

bagofmice February 21, 2011 at 2:18 pm

Well, considering what he had tied to that collar…

trampndirtdown February 21, 2011 at 10:41 pm

Don't forget Burr's foray into snuff films. Too bad he got deported over it.

His real name was Bill Braski. BRASKI!!!

DaRooster February 21, 2011 at 3:15 pm

I once saw him wade across the Potomac [hiccup] with 13 soldiers on his back in a snowstorm!
BRASKI!

gullywompr February 21, 2011 at 3:48 pm

Brasky invented the name "Teabaggers". They did NOT want to be called that.

To BILL BRASKY!!!

TheSheriffsNear February 22, 2011 at 10:58 am

A prize for obscure sub-reference!

BTW, Bill Braski trained his dog to make him Manhattan's every night when he came home from work.

Wait, that wasn't his dog, that was my WIFE! BRASKI!!

Did Georgie boy also publish stories in the New York Times about things which have been widespread among tweens for the past ten years and call them "alarming new trends?"

V572625694 February 21, 2011 at 2:00 pm

No, but he did compose the first known charticle on that topic, and would later be granted the first Pulitzer Prize.

sezme February 21, 2011 at 1:30 pm

If he were alive today, his religious beliefs – Deism – would make him ineligible to run even as a Democrat, and his support for slavery would make him ineligible to run even as a Republican. This is why he's a True National Hero.

Radiotherapy February 21, 2011 at 5:25 pm

However, he would have no problems being a teabagger?

DoktorZoom February 21, 2011 at 8:27 pm

trampndirtdown February 21, 2011 at 10:44 pm

Dicks United.

mourningnmerica February 21, 2011 at 9:05 pm

I'm confused. His support of slavery would make him a shoo-in for the Republican nomination in 2012. I mean, am I wrong?

MinAgain February 21, 2011 at 1:30 pm

15. Never told a lie. Except for the lie of saying he never told a lie.

LionelHutzEsq February 21, 2011 at 1:43 pm

It depends on what the meaning of is, is. Also if you count fellatio as "sex."

chicken_thief February 21, 2011 at 3:25 pm

But he had his fingers crossed at the time.

Crank_Tango February 21, 2011 at 1:31 pm

um yeah, it used to be spelled "chuse" –it's in the constitution!

gef05 February 21, 2011 at 5:45 pm

It's spelled correctly, you just can't see the top of the letter "o" because of the semen stain.

SayItWithWookies February 21, 2011 at 1:32 pm

You know what was a real downer? Hanging out with GW at Mount Vernon, taking giant hits off his bong while sitting on his veranda overlooking the beautiful bend in the Potomac, and then realizing all his dank green bud was grown by slaves. Total buzzkill.

V572625694 February 21, 2011 at 1:40 pm

But the cigars were terrific.

OzoneTom February 22, 2011 at 12:04 pm

As well as that tasty rye whisky.

LionelHutzEsq February 21, 2011 at 1:44 pm

And you really have never done cocaine until you have done it off the ass of one of Washington's slaves.

Radiotherapy February 21, 2011 at 1:56 pm

I'm confused, male or female?

chicken_thief February 21, 2011 at 3:46 pm

Listening to him invoke the name "Reagan" every time he felt he needed to add some umphhh to his point runed my visit – despite the primo herb.

DemonicRage February 21, 2011 at 8:40 pm

It sucked to be there on afternoons when he would look at you and say, "Would you like me to show you something else I can do with my long bony middle finger?" I mean on afternoons when a person wasn't in that particular mood.

jus_wonderin February 21, 2011 at 1:32 pm

Number 14 – "T"

dr_giraud February 21, 2011 at 1:34 pm

So he invented crop rotation AND slave rotation? There's history you can sit and spin on.

#17: Never did produce his birth certificate in long form.

twaingirl February 21, 2011 at 1:52 pm

He never was born. He was a gift from Kal-El.

Negropolis February 21, 2011 at 10:50 pm

Psst…I hear he was born in England to Catholics! It'd be irresponsible not to speculate.

Catholic back then was like Muslim is, now.

GuanoFaucet February 21, 2011 at 1:47 pm

#11 Unbeknownst to Washington, over two centuries later he would serve as a blank canvas on which the teatards would project their authoritarian assholery. (see, also: #12 Washington was a libertarian, and #13 Washington hated communists)

twaingirl February 21, 2011 at 1:48 pm

#27: Let Sherman burn the South again and again and again. True Story: Washington didn't like no traitors, man.

JustPixelz February 21, 2011 at 4:12 pm

But, ironically, he gets blamed for everything that's wrong in politics. "We don't need a bunch of Washington bureaucrats telling us what to do!" "Washington is not the solution; it's the problem." "Politicians need to get away from Washington to find out how real Americans live." The bastard.

Oblios_Cap February 21, 2011 at 1:51 pm

for although I do not think they would be benefited by the change, yet the idea of freedom might be too great a temptation for them to resist.

And this remains the core philosophy of our capitalist overlords, lo, to this very day.

HistoriCat February 21, 2011 at 2:25 pm

Yes, well, freedom is a great burden for many people and they would be better off if a firm hand were shown so that they could lead happy, productive lives. Just think of all the spirituals they could sing.

Oblios_Cap February 21, 2011 at 2:30 pm

Or even such classic songs as "Camptown Ladies"!

Doo-dah, doo dah.

Funny movie, funny man that Mel Brooks. Unfortunately, the cowboy reminds of Scott Walker.

OneDollarJuana February 21, 2011 at 1:51 pm

16. Invented the Kindle, but since he forgot to invent the internets at the same time, it disappeared from history until Lincoln invented them, along with Amazon Books (so he could make bank from his speaking tour to Gettysburg).

Oblios_Cap February 21, 2011 at 1:52 pm

#13 Washington rode about in a slave-powered hover round, displaying misspelled signs later in his life.

Beowoof February 21, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Before or after corn syrup induced Alzheimer?

19. Was able to cross the Rio Grande and defeat the Hessian forces at Trenton without the use of a smartphone or GPS device.

nounverb911 February 21, 2011 at 2:01 pm

However, he did use Predator Drones.

DoktorZoom February 21, 2011 at 8:32 pm

Fuck that "drone" shit, dude. He used actual predators–wolves, grizzlies, catamounts (definitely *not* no PUMAS), and muthafuckin' sharks.

Negropolis February 21, 2011 at 10:56 pm

And laser-cats, also. Oh, and sharks with lasers on their backs. Tambien.

No, no, no. He crossed the Mississippi to defeat the Haitians in the Battle of Bloody Kansas sans surveying maps drafted by Louis & Clark.

Crucial difference: Washington actually DID read all of the papers.
