We founding father the historical mistake in Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Rolling Stone cover earlier? Can you spot it?!

Okay, so for all you who don't get excited reading the Federalist papers, or know your Bill of Rights from 1 to 10, the John Hancock tramp stamp on Julia's lower back is from the Declaration of Independence, whereas the text scrawled all over Julia's upper back is from the Constitution!

No, thank you, Schoolhouse Rock!

As you probably could've guessed, Julia responded to the error in the most Vice Presidential way possible…blaming someone else on Twitter:

jfk hearse sells for 176 thousand dollars

We don't think we'd want this vehicle on our driveway, but to each their own!

Over the weekend, the 1964 white Cadillac hearse that carried JFK's body following his assassination in Dallas sold for $176,000 at an Arizona auction!

The hearse was purchased by 67-year-old Stephen Tebo, a commercial real estate investor who lives in Boulder, Colorado. He says he's hoping to "open a museum with his collection of cars."

Good luck with that, Stephen! And congrats on UR macabre historical purchase!

R.I.P. Georgia Music Hall Of Fame

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Sad Sad

georgia music hall of fame to close due to budget cuts

Such a shame!

As a result of budget cuts and low attendance, the Georgia Music Hall of Fame will be closing next month.

The memorabilia will be moved to the University of Georgia, as well as other state colleges, but the state's museum will be NO MORE after June 12.

Here's what the museum's executive director Lisa Love had to say about it:

"Locally, the people are heartbroken."

Between the Georgia Music Hall of Fame closing, the NYC Opera in danger of closing, and the struggling Philadephia Orchestra, it's tough times for landmark/historical music-related venues in this country.

Very sad…
