Fun trivia: James Whistler

Why was artist James A. McNeill Whistler kicked out of the West Point Military Academy as a young man?

Answer: For misconduct. Assigned to draw a bridge in an engineering class, he drew two little boys fishing from it. Ordered to remove them, he drew the boys fishing from the riverbank. Again ordered to remove them, he drew two little headstones near the river.
