They call me the Fathead. I attribute it to a typographical error whereby I lost the C in my nickname; it should have been "Facthead". But it stuck.

Anyway, a friend of mine asked for my help once in the spring of 2007, knowing about my head of facts. I told him what a nice day it was, and he said:

"Yeah, whatever. You recognize this guy here?" At which point my friend indicated a picture of a President of the United States. It took me a moment.

"Yeah, I know that one. What about him?"

"Well, who came before him as President? No, I meant after him. No, wait, before--"

"Actually, it doesn't matter what you meant, because the answer is the same no matter what." And I told him the answer, and it was true, and he remembered it well.

What was my answer?

What Next?

That, and if the pic were of Bill Clinton.

You have a point, calmsavior, but I said that the answer would be the same, and not merely have the same name.

*Shrug.* I dunno, could it have been worded better? In which case, I could fix it.

Nice puzzle! Good thing I remembered I still remember the names of the presidents to the tune of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer from back in 6th grade.
