Lewis and Clark:Off the Record

One day Lewis and Clark expedition made a short rest stop near the future location of Lexington, MO.


“You know, Meriwether“, said William Clark squatting in the tall grass and enjoying the view,”I hope some schmuck in the future won’t install a historic marker at every place we took a crap”. “I don’t know, William, we are making history here”, replied Lewis and started looking around for a large-sized leaf.

Back on the boat he noted the exact coordinates of the historic spot for posterity and named the plant he just used “charminuim” because it felt “ultra soft”.
