A really quick one today. I'm getting married in 2 weeks, so it's probably just going to be a lot of short reblogs until June, when I'll finally have time to do more substantial posts. I found this story on Futility Closet's blog here.
"In 1860, Abraham Lincoln received this letter from a Pete Muggins in Fillmore, La.:
"'God damn your god damned old Hellfired god damned soul to hell god damn you and goddam your god damned family’s god dammed hellfired god damned soul to hell and god damnnation god damn them and god damn your god damn friends to hell god damn their god damned souls to damnation.'"
Eloquent. And useful.
