“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all geeks are created equal, that they are endowed by their Webmaster with certain administrative Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Dorkiness.”

That, most likely, would have been the preamble to the Declaration of Independence in the bizarre parallel universe which created the time-traveling, cosmic-powered Fantastic Forefathers, as envisioned on this Threadless t-shirt. You can almost see the comic book headline now: “What If… America’s Greatest Presidents Had Become the Fantastic Four?”

Roll call:

  • George “Mr. Fantastic” Washington
  • Teddy “The Human Torch” Roosevelt
  • Abraham “The Thing” Lincoln
  • Thomas “Invisible Guy” Jefferson

I would totally buy this comic if someone ever printed it (and, you know, probably also the shirt). Under this premise, I guess James Buchanan becomes Doctor Doom. Something to ponder this Independence Day. Enjoy.
