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 say...like we've never seen him before...
Reminder that the Los Angeles federal courthouse has a statue of Abraham Lincoln where he's a shirtless young stud suggestively tugging at his waistband like a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model: pic.twitter.com/32bjqEERYi

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 cannot imagine the number of young men who've walked by this and had a sudden realization...

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...
