landscape-536173_1280When Will Rogers was being taken to the White House to meet President Calvin Coolidge, Vice President Dawes cautioned him not to try to be funny because the President had no sense of humor whatsoever.

Undaunted, Rogers bet the Vice-President that he could have Coolidge laughing within 20 seconds.

When the formal introduction was made, Dawes began by saying, “Mr. President, may I introduce my friend, Mr. Will Rogers.”

Rogers held out his hand and with a questioning look said, “Pardon me, I didn’t quite get the name.”

Coolidge roared with laughter; Rogers won the wager.
