Yesterday, Scott Allen discussed "What's Cooking, Uncle Sam?"—an exhibit that explores how the Government has affected America’s food consumption. While poking around the exhibit's website, I found this photo of Richard Nixon's humble last meal as president. In case you're ever in a game show or trivia night situation where you're asked what Richard Nixon's last meal was as president, you'll be ready.

Side note: One of Nixon's favorite snacks was cottage cheese and ketchup. Can't see this coming up on a game show, but feel free to use it if you ever want to gross someone out.
