Even if you're Franchise/{{Batman}}. Or [[http://www.glarkware.com/adult/bigfoot-vs-abe-lincoln Bigfoot]]. In some ways, Abraham Lincoln is almost as much a MemeticBadass as Creator/ChuckNorris. In fact, this is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zj2Zf9tlg2Y where you can go to watch them have a rap battle.]] Some would count him as the only president to be more {{Badass}} than UsefulNotes/TheodoreRoosevelt (and maybe UsefulNotes/AndrewJackson, if you [[ValuesDissonance ignore the politics]]). On the other hand, Website/{{Cracked}} [[http://www.cracked.com/article_15895_the-5-most-badass-presidents-all-time_p2.html doesn't even count him among the top five,]] though the same author later acknowledged the oversight and made an article devoted strictly to Lincoln called [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/abraham-lincoln-portrait-crazy-badass/ Abraham Lincoln: Portrait Of A Crazy Badass.]] It really depends on how much weight you give the BadassBeard.

Was famously born in a log cabin, but not the one you can get tours of (despite what the guides will tell you); that one was built 8 years after he was born. As [[{{QI}} Stephen Fry]] once put it, it is dangerously close to the legendary schoolboy gaffe quoted above.
