Cracked 5 … October 17th, 2017

In January 1961, during his Inaugural Address, President Kennedy stated, “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.” What few people know is that there were five previous drafts to that statement before arriving at the sixth one which was shared with the public. Today, as a benefit to our readers, we present to you those previous incarnations:

A. Ask for yourself. Your country will do it.


B. Ask for a country, just for yourself.


C. What your country can do for you–ask me about it.


D. What you can do for your country is asking yourself, what has your country done for you?


E. Stop asking so much.
