Lawn-Mower Guy is a guy who was seen mowing the lawn around the shut-down Lincoln Memorial earlier today.
What is Lawn-Mower Guy’s real identity?
Chris Cox, seemingly the sole member of the so-called "Memorial Militia."
Why was he mowing the lawn?
He "feels obligated to help as veterans prepare to descend on the nation’s capital for this weekend’s Million Vet March," CBS DC reports.
Wait — a million vets are going to march on Washington this weekend?
No, not even close. That’s just what they call every march on Washington, for some reason.
Does Lawn-Mower Guy intend to perform other voluntary acts of manual labor around D.C. aside from mowing lawns?
Very much so. "If they shut down our memorials, we’re still going to take the trash out, we’re going to clean the windows, we’re going to cut the grass, we’re going to pull the weeds, we’re going to do the tree work," Lawn-Mower Guy says.
What kind of flag is he carrying around with him?
That’s the state flag of South Carolina.
Oh. So he’s …
Probably kind of crazy, yeah.
Does Lawn-Mower Guy have a beard?
Was Lawn-Mower Guy allowed to mow his lawn unfettered by the authorities?
Sadly, no. Although the Park Police "let him work undisturbed for a time," eventually "three cruisers with multiple officers" came by and requested that Lawn-Mower Guy cease all lawn-mowing activity. "He was asked to leave, and he complied," said a spokesman for the Park Police.
What would Abraham Lincoln say about Lawn-Mower Guy?
"A lawn mower divided against itself cannot mow."
I don’t know, you put me on the spot.
