I’ve already gotten one comment this morning saying, “Why is Abraham Lincoln eating whale meat?” Well, if you’re not familiar with the story of Moby Dick, you might have had a similar reaction. This is Captain Ahab, from the novel, who often referred to Moby Dick as “the great white whale.”

Little known historical fact: Abraham Lincoln was also the captain of a whaling ship early in his life in Illinois. The ship was made of logs, in the style of a log cabin, and there were so few whales in Illinois that he gave it up to practice the more lucrative field of law, eventually becoming president of one of the larger countries in North America.
