what is it about lincoln that inspires weirdness? There was just an undead lincoln in "Ugly americans," and Lincoln was prominent in "The Screw on Head."

@Alison: Thanks!

@Lazarus: I think part of it is he's probably the most recognizable president. His face is incredibly fun to draw. There's so much going on. Also, he comes across as very stern and sober and that just asks to be monster/zombie-ified. Oh, and he looks great in 60's-70's fashion. :)
