Lincoln's Doctor's Dog

God created Lincoln with an assist from Adam.

God created dogs with an assist from wolves.

Man created best seller's lists with an assist from the New York Times.

Since the time that we've been keeping track of best sellers which is a shorter time than we've been keeping track of Lincoln and much shorter than we've been keeping track of either God or Dog, it has become apparent that the books that most regularly show up on the best seller's list are books about Lincoln, dogs and doctors.

That's excluding God of course.

This trend has been going on long enough now to become a "thing".

Nobody yet has had the nerve to write a book called "Lincoln's Doctor's Dog" as far as I know but it's an almost sure fire best seller.

And think of the movie: Daniel Day Lewis once again playing Lincoln with Lincoln's doctor James Dipschwitz whose name we will change to Henry Van Ryne being played by Joaquin Phoenix and Lincoln's Doctor's Dog Max whose name we will change to King being played by my dog Rex.
