American Memory Jogger
Carrie had trouble with her American History class. To remember an important fact she came up with this strange story. Can you decipher the story and find the facts?
I had a delicate china plate that I was trying to smash with a giant pen. On the giant pen teetered a Jersey cow. On the cow's back was King George, who was trying to connect his cut. He was holding a massive block of ice. On the block of ice sat Marilyn Monroe, who had an ocean liner which was headed south. The ocean liner had a bit of a problem: there were pigs with their hams sticking out stuck in the smoke stacks. Fortunately, Thomas Jefferson came on the scene to help out. He happened to be holding the Statue of Liberty; on it was a North bound ocean liner. On this liner there were some Island rodents peeping from the peepholes.
