The Grizzly-Bear Chair
Presented, Sept. 8, 1865 to Andrew Johnson, President by Seth Kinman, the California Hunter and Trapper.
You have to wonder if this wouldn't be a better chair for the oval office. I mean, who would mess with a country whose leader sat in a chair made from a Grizzly Bear. Really, wouldn't you find that at least a little intimidating?
Imagine the meeting...
Some world leader: "Well, Mr. President, I don't think we can meet your demands in this delicate situation."
President, sitting in the Grizzly Bear Chair: "Funny thing...the Grizzly Bear I'm not sitting on said the same thing." (Then he winks.)
Some world leader we owe money: "Mr. President, we must insist that your debt be repaid immediately."
President, sitting in the Grizzly Bear Chair, one leg over the arm of the chair: "Wow, that reminds me. I used to owe a Grizzly Bear money too." (Then he winks.)
You get the idea. I say as Americans, we must find this Grizzly Bear Chair of ultimate power and then make a few more for Air Force One and one for traveling.
As always, your ideas are welcome.
Here is another picture with the man who made the chair, Seth Kinman. Cool.
