- And speaking of JFK, let's lead this off with another Brad Neely animation, which tells the story of the hypercharismatic telepathical knight we all know and love. (Again, not safe for work at all.)
- A Japanese cartoon from the late 30s shows the Japanese fighting Americans, represented by Mickey Mice (Mouses?). (via Neatorama)
- There's an entire museum devoted to Presidential pets. Who knew?
- Over at the A. Lincoln Blog, Millard Fillmore soap-on-a-rope has been located. No word on whether or not he actually won the auction, though. Incidentally, give it up for Brian at the A. Lincoln blog, who's retiring from the world of history blogging after a lengthy tenure as one of the best Civil War blogs out there.
- Incidentally, not a link, but right now there are three Millard Fillmore soaps-on-a-rope for sale on ebay. And I do have a birthday coming up. Okay, in six months, but it's out there!
- Figures from early American History immortalized in Pez-dispenser form. (Snopes)
- The gun used to kill Lee Harvey Oswald is up for auction, along with a slew of other pop-culture-abilia. (via BoingBoing)
- Here's a collection of amazing historical film footage from New York City. (via Gothamist)

Friday Links Jump the Gun
I'm posting Friday links a little early this week for a couple of reasons. First off, I want to make up for my poor showing last week. Secondly, I wanted to let all you JFK buffs out there know that his alleged illegitimate son is going to be on 20/20 tomorrow night. Check your local listings for more info.
