The American Constitution is now well into its third century, which says a lot about the political sagacity of the Founding Fathers. Its adoption was a messy business. It gave the slave states additional seats in the House of Representatives by counting each slave — who couldn’t vote — as three-fifths of a person.

The battle cry: "Yee-Haw" is actually derived from, you guessed it: "Ji-Had".
