History Lesson

Recommended Posts

There's a history behind most things and how they got started.

Apparantly, during the 1600's and into the 1700's the Colonies, for unbeknowest reasons, could not produce enough manure to use as fertilizer. There fore England decide that they would ship manure to the Colonies. They forgot one thing, manure and water do not exactly mix well. Usually heat is created, and fires start. After losing several ships at sea, it was decided that the manue would be stored above the water line. To insure that this was done, on each burlap bundle of manure the words: "SHIP HIGH IN TRANSIT" were stenciled. Soon, realizing that those words took up space, it was finally abbreviated to S. H. I. T.

Gosh its nice to edumacated.
