    Abraham Lincoln was elected to congress in 1846
    John F Kennedy was elected to congress in 1946.

    Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
    Both wives lost children while living in the White house.

    Both Presidents were shot on a friday.
    Both presidents were shot in the head.

    Now it gets really wierd.

    Lincoln's secretary was named kennedy
    Kennedy's secretary was named Lincoln.

    Both were assassinated by southerners.
    Both were succeeded by southerners named Johnson.

    Andrew Johnson who succeeded lincoln was born in 1808.
    Lyndon Johnson who succeeded Kennedy was born in 1908.

    John wilkes Booth who assassinated Lincoln was born in 1839.
    Lee harvey oswald who assassinated Kennedy was born in 1939.

    Both assassins were known by their three names.
    Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

    Now hang on to your seat.

    Lincoln was shot at the theatre named 'Ford'.
    Kennedy was shot in a car named 'Lincoln made by Ford'.

    Lincoln was shot in a theatre and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.
    Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a theatre.

    Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

    And here's the kicker........

    A week before lincoln was shot he was in Monroe,Maryland.
    A week before Kennedy was shot he was with marilyn Monroe

    That information has been floating around for decades and periodically turns up. I'm old enough to actually remember where I was and what I was doing when JFK was shot.
