woohooligan NEW! Check out our best laughs from 2016!
Happy Thanksgiving! Did you know Lincoln created Thanksgiving as a national holiday in the US?

I contend that old Abe fits perfectly into sci-fi, because you can't talk about Lincoln without broaching slavery and alien slave masters are such a big part of the genre... the Faculty, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Fantastic Planet, Dr. Who, Star Trek, Star Trek, Star Trek, Star Trek (a little gory), Doctor Who, Star Wars. And that's before you even consider Lincoln's actual appearance on Star Trek. ;P

Thanks to Michael Yakutis and the Webcomic Underdogs for backing our Kickstarter last year. This is their mascot, Space Lincoln, making a special guest appearance. To be honest, Abe, I had a bit of difficulty figuring out how to work you into a comic. I didn't want to just throw him into the background somewhere... after all, I'd already given the other cameos prominent characters in the strip, so a background shot wouldn't really be fair. So I spent a little time looking at Lincoln quotes... it turns out those first two panels are verbatim quotes from the man himself, and I even worked another couple of real-world quotes into this week's bonus panel (now on Patreon).

And I'll remind everybody again that I publish 5th Panel Guest Strips. Just drop me a line with a link to your bonus panel and (barring anything too offensive), I'll add it to the comments on the comic you're riffing on and I'll link back to you if you like.

Do you have a favorite Lincoln quote or joke? Maybe you've got a favorite slavery or dead-president joke? Feel free to share them in the comments.

Stay awesome, Hooligans!

Did you enjoy this? Want more? All of the bonus panels and alternate endings are now available on the official Woohooligan Patreon page!
