God: Hey, Abe, if you're from Illinois... how did you come by the sobriquet, Honest Abe? Lincoln: Well, that was before the word Illinois became synonymous with the term crooked. Whenever they caught a crook in Illinois, they'd say, "old Honest Abe must be turning in his grave!" These days they just call me, Spinning Abe.
