Coolidge was actually a pretty hysterical guy, particularly if you like your humor on the dry side. Growing up he participated a great deal in village minstral shows and gave humorous speeches in college. The great humorist Will Rogers said of him: "Mr. Coolidge has more subtle humor than almost any public man I ever met. I have often said I would like to have been hidden in his desk somewhere and just heard the little sly 'digs' that he pulled on various people that never got 'em at all. I bet he wasted more humor on folks than almost anybody."
My favorite example though was when he found himself sitting next to
a young woman at a dinner party. The woman confided to Coolidge that
she had a bet that she could get at least three words of conversation
out of him, to which Coolidge quietly replied, "You lose."
Fact: The first ski lift in the U.S. was started in Vermont.
