We were sitting around the table eating pizza, and the conversation turned to the Mason-Dixon line. Don't ask how or why... you know how general chit chat can evolve. Esther then asked me why she couldn't see the Mason-Dixon line on the map. I decided that textbooks or no, it was time for a brief study on the history of the Mason-Dixon line.
While we can't see the Mason-Dixon line, I was surprised at what she could see.
"Hey look, Wisconsin and Finger Lakes look like an Indian Chief!" You have to understand that we have a large map of the United States on a wall. Wisconsin is yellow, for the record. Maybe something to do with cheese?
That wasn't all.
"And Mississippi looks like that chef on Ratatouille, the one who 'served time' and said ' I keeeled a man with my thumb.'"
Seriously. If you look at it like a profile, it does.
What was in that pizza anyway?
