Manly Cheesecake #1

Katie-Bar-The-Door and I are back from the Land of Lincoln where we spent four days in Chicago, followed by a weekend in Springfield, visiting friends, museums, eateries, Wrigley, etc. I didn't announce the trip ahead of time—seems like an invitation to come rob stately Monkey Manor—but we're back and I'll be back to the serious business of blogging tomorrow.

In the meantime, I'll kick things off with a series of posts in honor of Thingy at Pondering Life who wants "manly cheesecake" on her dessert menu. I assume she's thinking more along the lines of Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Robert Montgomery and the like, and she's going to get all of those and more, but I'll start her off with a photo of one of the greatest of Americans, Abraham Lincoln, known affectionately in these parts as "Lucky Linky."

And remember, Myth: Abraham Lincoln didn't die in vain -- no, he died in Washington, D.C.! But wait, he lives again! Thanks to the Miracle of Animatronics!!

Isn't Manly Cheescake just Beefcake? Or is there a distinction I'm missing?

I suspect you're right, that "beefcake" is the proper term, but I was so amused when Thingy demanded "manly cheesecake" that I just had to go with it ...

And Who, the animatronic Lincoln cracked me up!

Ha! Just noticed Lincoln as cheesecake. :)

And I prefer your 'manly cheesecake' over beefcake. It sounds too heavy, you know? BEEFcake...or creamy, delicious cheesecake. ;)

"Manly cheesecake" -- sounds like something you'd order for dessert at a four-star restaurant.

Why, I imagine they could even whip up a vegan version for those so inclined ...
