So, just because, I decided to Google "nixon bowling," in order to print out a pic to add to my other interesting pics in the kitchen, including Nixon & Elvis and Elvis & Liberace.
Now, the classic Lebowski edition photo of Nixon bowling is this one:
Man, does that picture have everything, or what? Nixon. Dark clothing and white bowling shoes. The wallpaper. The amazingly cheesy plastic furniture. It's like Lebowski meets Mid Century Modern in the Bunker.
But I also found this one:
The evil old bastard is bowling with a tie on. White bowling shoes. Classic form. But damned if he isn't over the line! Mark it zero, Dude!
But wait! There's more!
Here's another one. Check out the form. My god. Nixon is amazing in this picture. Black & white washed with florescent light, with that incredibly annoying arabesque decor.
Dude, that is so Nixon!
Except, the White House bowling alley predates the old bastard somewhat.
That's right. Harry Truman with a a bunch of embarrassed looking guys in wheechairs, circa 1948.
