A group of tourists from Israel are visiting many of the famous sites in England. This afternoon, they are visiting Runneymede. Their guide tells the party, "You are standing on a very special place, because it was here that the Magna Carta was signed. The Magna Carta is now considered to be one of the most important legal documents in the history of democracy."
"So when was it signed?" asks Abe, one of the party.
The guide replies, "1215."
Abe looks at his watch and says, "Oy vay, we’ve missed the signing by 90 minutes."
