In a move not seen since more than four score and seven years ago, former President Abraham Lincoln has once again lost money for privileged white people.
It first happened in 1865 when he eliminated their free work force by abolishing slavery. Now it's happened again with the cinematic flop, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
"The movie seemed like a perfect idea at the time," said one white movie executive as he sipped on a mint julep.
Other Lincoln-related projects are now in danger. A&E has just abolished a review show for the former president's wife called, Besides That, How Was The Play Mrs. Lincoln?
