Remember those questions on the IQ tests they used to give us?

The one where they show you a bunch of things and say, "Which one doesn't belong?" Like, maybe, a duck, a goose, a turkey, and a skunk? This picture reminded the Mandarin of a question like that. Or maybe the Sesame Street song the Mandarin used to sing to his sons when they were little:

"One of these things is not like the others,/ One of these things just doesn't belong,/ Can you tell which thing is not like the others/ By the time I finish my song?"

Anyway, today's secret category was "Presidential Timber." The Mandarin sees three ex-Presidents, two powerful women who could be President (one of them will) and one,... well, you get the picture.
