"I have seen Lincoln place a cup of water between his heels, and then folding his arms, bend his tall form backward until he could grip the edge of the cup between his teeth and then straighten himself up, without spilling the water."
That would not only require strong teeth, would it?

This is the best photo I can find that approximates Lincoln's feat.
