Sam, a recently fired journalist, picked up story book writing. Sam tried to write a fictional book about James A. Garfield, Herbert Hoover, Harry S. Truman, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Through the magic of time travel, these presidents formed a polo team and played against other presidents.

The book flopped because of one big problem. What was it?



Answer

The listed presidents are all left handed. If a lefty played polo he would end up hitting another horse because the lefty would be like a mirror image of the righty going toward him with his polo club lined up with the righty's. (Think about it, it makes sense.) Since they were the only left handed presidents they could not play polo with any other presidents effectively.
