One possible theory: Founders never watched Sesame Street, and therefore cannot count to 12.


Have you ever danced with a Tribble in the pale moonlight?

Sorry, I was thinking the Pledge of Allegiance (though "In God we trust" didn't appear on paper money until the 1950s for that exact reason, so it's at least half true).


Regardless, that motto didn't appear on any money until the 1860s, almost 70 years after the signing of the treaty and closer to a century since the United States gained its independence.
