If you are eating right now, stop eating! You are about to see presidents of the United States wearing bathing suits, and it is an experience that is incompatible with the digestion of food.

You might be wondering, “Is this safe to view at work?” The answer is that it depends on where you work. If you’re not sure, ask the HR department if your office has a policy on looking at pictures of the presidents in bathing suits during work hours.

Also, please follow us on Facebook and Twitter, because it will make us happy. (We already checked with your HR and this is fine to do at work!)

You might as well linger here, because it’s not going to get any better than this. (We mean both this list and, also, your life.)


Jimmy Carter in a bathing suit

Here is a photo of Jimmy Carter in Georgia at the Plains High School Senior Prom. As a chaperone, it was his job to make sure none of the students were eaten by catfish.


JFK in a bathing suit

“I’ve already slept with all the women on this beach, too. Hoist the mainsail, we’re moving on to the next island!”


George Washington in a bathing suit (sort of)

George Washington

You can see a half-naked George Washington anytime you want, by going to the National Museum of American History. You can even sit in his lap, if you don’t mind being arrested.

“Well Timmy, it says here ‘Warning extreme danger do not use as a floatation device,’ but I don’t know who the hell these people think they’re talking to.”

FDR’s blossoming career as a 1920s circus strong man on the Atlantic City boardwalk was cut short when he decided to enter politics.

Harry S. Truman

Every day is an adventure with Harry S. Truman! That’s why every day he wears a pith helmet.


Barack Obama

Sure, he’s enjoying those legs now. But that deal he made with the sea witch is going to come back to haunt him.


Dwight D. Eisenhower in a bathing suit

Dwight D. Eisenhower

I hope this woman was telling Dwight D. Eisenhower that he looks great and does not need to be wearing Spanx.


Young Ronald Reagan in a bathing suit

Ronald Reagan

The biggest drowning risk at Ronald Reagan’s pool was drowning in his deep blue eyes. (And then, dazed and lightheaded, drowning in the pool.)
