Presidents Day 2011: 22 Ridiculous Things You Didn't Know About U.S. Presidents (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Happy Presidents Day! If you're like us, you'd rather spend today remembering our former commanders-in-chief for the ridiculous things they did rather than the groundbreaking things they did. Take FDR for example: sure, he made some phenomenal changes to our nation, but did you know he also had a movie credit? Or take Abraham Lincoln and JFK: should we remember them for ending slavery or inspiring a generation? Or should we honor them for winning a wrestling match and getting into Harvard despite a shoddy application, respectively?

With all those fascinating tidbits out there, we just had to update our slideshow from last year to tell you everything you didn't know about U.S. presidents' quirks, pets, hobbies, vices and more. Vote for the most ridiculous fact!
