George W. Bush tried to get out of the #IceBucketChallenge by writing a check to the ALS Foundation. His wife Laura had other plans.

Bush thought it wasn't 'presidential for me to be splashed with ice water, so I'm simply going to write you a check.'  Laura Bush saved the day by dousing her husband and saying, 'That check is for me. I wouldn't ruin my hairstyle.'
