A peek into some personal family history. (Neat stuff.)

I feel like I'm going out on a bit of a limb sharing this with you guys, but I figured some of you could appreciate it.

From left to right: My grandfather, his mother, and his father.





"Okay... so what's so neat about this?"

We all know the story of John Dillinger and his broad spectrum of gangsters, many of which got caught. Well... just as there were those who got caught, there were several who did not. My great grandfather, Leonard, was one of them.

This picture is actually a bit of a mystery... nobody in our family knows where or exactly when it was taken. Taking a stab at the age of my grandfather in this picture (I think that's a letterman jacket he's wearing), it would have to be after Dillinger's death.



Just thought you all would enjoy this.

I have a feeling she would have schooled you. My family used to be full of badasses. Now it's just a bunch of crazy people who try to start drama.

Sorry OP - your story is busted:

http://www.snopes.com/risque/phallacies/dillinger.asp

Quote:
Claim: Gangster John Dillinger's exceptionally large penis is housed in one of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C.

Status: False.

Origins: One of the more bizarre celebrity legends is the claim that notorious bank robber John Dillinger was not only the proud possessor of an unusually large penis, but that this portion of his anatomy was removed post-mortem and put on display at one of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C. (Some versions state that the receiving institution was not the Smithsonian but the Armed Forces Medical Museum, which is on the grounds of the Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington.) That the Smithsonian denies having (or ever having had) this piece of classic Americana in their collection is part of the game, of course. (An auxiliary portion of the legend is that Smithsonian docents, upon being asked where Mr. Dillinger's organ can be found, will not deny its presence in the collection but will fabricate an excuse as to why it is not currently on display.)
