In his defense, he was just trying to confuse the Germans.

This is how it starts. Before you know it, your morning newspaper is in Flemish.

Michigan once almost went to war with Ohio over a border dispute, and we'll do it again if they try anything fishy.

His mistake was moving it too far too quickly. A couple or four inches a year, every year, he'd never be suspected. Within a mere 1,267,200 years, Paris would be within Belgium.

Did moving the border affect the farmer's property tax rates?

Yeah, "accidentally" I'm sure. He also farted in their general direction.

Thus nearly achieving peacefully what thousands of years of warfare failed to do.
Who squealed?
