You know that Abraham Lincoln who used to be president of America but who was shot watching a film with his missus? Well, it wasn’t a real assassination attempt, it was a prank that went wrong.
Apparently, Lincoln was so fed up with his missus constantly nagging him about doing jobs around The White House he paid a mate of his to pretend to shoot him with a blank round. He was then going to pretend he’d really been shot so she’d feel sorry for him and let him off doing the DIY.
Unfortunately for him, the bloke accidentally put real bullets in the gun and killed him. His missus never got over it apparently and ended up homeless and living in a cardboard box in Texas where she died on her 100th birthday.
Absolutely true that is. A mate of mine’s brother told me down the pub.
