Why didn’t Oliver Ellsworth sign the Constitution?

This blog is about answers, right? And sometimes you find answers at school, right? And sometimes at school you have to learn boring stuff, right? So here is this week’s question:

Why didn’t Oliver Ellsworth sign the Constitution?

A known prankster, Oliver actually planned on signing the constitution but during all the important meetings he kept pulling on Benjamin Franklin’s wig. When it came time to sign the Constitution, the rest of the guys played a cruel joke on him and told him the wrong date and time – he actually ended up crashing a bar mitzvah instead.

Consider yourself learned.
