Yes, a Shirtless Abe Lincoln Statue Actually Exists

Raffy Ermac

In case you didn't know (I sure as hell didn't), there's a statue at the Los Angeles Federal Courthouse depicting a young Abraham Lincoln...well, let's just we've never seen him before...

While statues memorializing political figures are nothing new in this country, Twitter user Zack Stentz wanted to point out that this particular statue of America's 16th president is unique, showing Honest Abe topless, baring his chest, and (as Stentz points out) "tugging at his waistband like a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model."

As expected, Twitter had a field day with this news.

I'm not really sure how to feel about this, but I do know that I'll need/want to see this statue in person soon. You know, for research purposes...
