In honor of Columbus Day, here are some fun facts about *Christopher Columbus!

-When approached by reporters, Columbus would often answer “Why do you come to ask me, the leader of the fucking free world, a chicken-shit question like that?” to tough questions.
-Columbus loved Fresca so much, that he had a Fresca fountain installed on the Mayflower.
-He loved play golf. But watch out! He had an awful slice!
-At 5’4″, Columbus was our shortest president.
-As the first owner of a telephone, his number was 111-1111.
-The dancing ostriches in “Dance of the Hours” are portrayed as females. In reality, only the male ostrich is black and white while the females are grey and brown.
-Chris was a very shy child growing up. He was into sports, and a funny story is, at 4, he taught hisself how to ride a bike. A two wheeler at that. Isn’t that special?
-Columbus’ debate with Ferdinand Magellan were the first ever to be televised on national television.
-Columbus starred opposite Bruce Willis in the 1988 blockbuster Die Hard.
