Even the most powerful man on the planet can still be embarrassed by his mom. In a letter from President John F. Kennedy, on display at the JFK library, Kennedy gently chastises his mother Rose for writing to Soviet Premier Khrushchev for an autographed photo. Within the letter, he asks that in the future, his mother check with him before contacting heads of state. Mrs. Kennedy replies by saying, “When I ask for Castro’s photograph, I will let you know in advance.”
