You simply can't have a John Quincy Adams party without an alligator in the bathroom. The president had a pet gator, which was gifted to him by the Marquis de Lafayette. He kept it in a tub in the East Room

What a pet bathtub alligator may look like.

Any President portrayed by Anthony Hopkins can't be all bad. And for the record, I doubt anyone half as smart as him has ever lived in that house since.

\Wilson doesn't count, he may've been book smart but he sure as fark didn't have much common sense

Next week (July 11) is John Quincy Adams' birthday! While the idea of celebrating the 245th birthday of some dead guy with killer muttonchops surely appeals to any flosser, your guests might feel weird attending a party in honor of a president they know nothing about. But a skilled host can diffuse the awkwardness with these conversation starters. Feed these lines to guests and they'll party like it's 1799

Good news everyone, I've invented a machine that makes you read this article in my voice.

He didn't live in the house, the house hung out in his presence.

\k I forgot him, but you get the point

Hasen't the 'skinny dipping in the Potomac' story been disproven long ago?

Frowns on your shenanigans. Didn't make him a great President, but the guy, intellectually at least, was/is a genius.

Also begs to differ. Unfortunately for him, his intelligence is probably also the source of his arrogance.

Other contenders: Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Nixon

You like Andrew "Trail of Tears" Jackson over President/genius/badass John Quincy Adams? Are you the special kind of stupid?

I've been to a couple of Millard Fillmore birthday parties. I think I still have the T-shirt somewhere.

Chief Justice Taft would like a word with you. Revolutionising the Supreme Court via certiorari (and managing to get Congress to approve it) alone speaks volumes about his brilliance. During his presidency, he had an amazing ability to predict the consequences of proposed legislation.

I agree with you however that Wilson was an intellectual thinker but utterly moronic in practicality and real-world causes and effects.
