Washington Nuts Fearing that curious elementary school students might think the little orbs dangling rather low at George Washington's waistband were the first president's testicles, officials in two Georgia school districts acted swiftly to alter Emanuel Leutze's painting, George Washington Crossing the Delaware, which is reproduced in the textbook United States in Modern Times. Teachers' aides were ordered to paint over the offending orbs— which turned out to be part of Washington's watch fob— in 2300 books.
