"Abe Lincoln is Special"

Hi there.  If you haven't seen "Jerome is Special" on this site then what's on this page won't make any sense to you.  To put this in context (and because this is a mini-sequel to "Jerome is Special") I suggest that all of you not with the program catch up by clicking HERE to see the original experiment.  It might not be a bad idea for those who did see the original to have a refresher, since the punchline here kind of ties into the original story too.

After doing the whole Jerome Xerox experiment, I decided to try doing the same thing with something else.  A friend of mine gave me a print out of Abraham Lincoln and I decided to run with it.  While "Jerome" was 51 paintings long and took 38 hours to complete, what you're about to see is quite a bit shorter and easier to put together....only taking about 9 hours.  I say "about" because I didn't time myself.  The reason for me not going "all out" is that the true intent behind this was sort of a joke.

Trivia Time:  The only celebrity that can be linked to my family tree is John Wilkes Booth.  Spooky, right? 

So here's the original print out  (I ended up having to cut out Abe and Xerox him so that he was a bit bigger):

And now we begin the adventure starring Abe Lincoln.

Enjoy.

Personally I like the other one a lot more, but for the sheer sake of experimentation I couldn't pass on the opportunity of a sequel starring Abe Lincoln.

Stop reading this.  Now.  Seriously.  Stop it.  Please?
