Little known fact, Jefferson signed the Declaration naked.. He felt that letting little Tommy dangle, would be the best way to ensure the freedom of his country. It's probably the puritanical historians who erased this chapter in the history books, they wanted to keep things buttoned up. But I once saw in a Nic Cage movie where he found some of Jeffersons Ball Fro on the actual Declaration, and we all know that Nic Cage movies are like documentaries. So at your next high society gathering, drop this little known fact and watch your friends stare in amazement.
