Bill & Ted's Historical Hysterical Postcards

      Below are all four of the postcards from the back of the original boxes of Bill & Ted's Excellent Cereal. The postcards depict four historical events: the discovery of America, the painting of the Mona Lisa, the discovery of electricty, and George Washington crossing the Delaware. Out of all the historical events the cereal makers could have picked, you have to wonder they decided on these particular four, and why they didn't choose anything involving Mozart or Falco. The postcards feature bad jokes, worse punctuation, and a flagrant disregard for the basic rules of capitalization. Nice work, Ralston!
