Fans Pay Tribute to Still Dead Andrew Jackson
Fans of late 7th President of the United States, Andrew Jackson, who remained dead Friday after 164 years of being so, are gathering to pay tribute to the late president.
Crowds began to form at the gates of The Hermitage, Jackson's home, as early as fifteen minutes ago as the news of Jackson's still-deadness spread.
"He was a great old president," said one fan, whose surly expression, wild gray coiffure, and refusal to clean a British officer's boots were in clear tribute of the late Tennessean.
"I'll continue missing him," said another fan, who was clearly succeeded by Martin Van Buren in an attempt to emulate her hero.
Jackson, who fought in the Battle of Emuckfaw, which sounds dirty, was discovered to still be dead at his home on Friday at the age of 242. He will continue to be buried in his current location.
