The Effects of Bill and Ted on the Consistency of our History Textbooks

Errata for World History: The Timeline of Our Globe and the People On It, by Prentice Hall, as necessitated due to the actions of Bill S. Preston, Esq., and Ted "Theodore" Logan.

p. 412 Genghis Khan's death date (1227) should instead be listed as 1989.

p. 576 The Magna Carta now begins and ends with the word "Dude."

p. 780 The picture of the Mona Lisa should now include a moustache and goatee.

p. 812 The picture of Marcel Duchamp's L.H.O.O.Q. should no longer include a mustache or a goatee.

p. 864 Chapter 23: The Rise of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust does not require any revisions, which strikes this publishing company as both inexplicable and morally reprehensible.
