Back when our Founding Fathers went about signing the Declaration of Independence, John Hancock made sure to make his particular signature large and flamboyant.
A popular legend states that he did this so King George III of England could see it without having to use his glasses, and while that story is indeed unfounded, it endures because we Americans love a good story – real or otherwise.
What is true, though, is that none of Hancock’s fellow members of the Continental Congress wrote the words “Too Big,” with an arrow that pointed to Hancock’s prideful display of penmanship.
Upon taking P1, Hamlin promptly had a bit of fun with Brad Keselowski‘s own Hancock-esque scrawl from Phoenix on the Coors Light Pole Award sign:
