The internets started buzzing on Wednesday afternoon after a random guy holding a South Carolina flag was spotted mowing the lawn of the Lincoln Memorial.
And yes, he was serious. His tool game was unparalleled. He even had a dolly to carry everything.

But we were confused. Like, are you bored, Mr. Mowing Man? Are you furloughed like the rest of D.C., Mr. Mowing Man?
Anyway thanks to some good ol’ internet investigation, it was revealed that this good Samaritan is Chris Cox. And he just likes mowing the damn lawn.
“These are our memorials. Do they think that we’re just going to let them go to hell? No… If they shut down our memorials, we’re still going to take the trash out, we’re going to clean the windows, we’re going to cut the grass, we’re going to pull the weeds, we’re going to do the tree work.”
Did this guy just make us proud to be Americans?
