Tate Compass Company

There was once a man named John Tate. It was his life's dream to have a compass company, so he saved his money and eventually started the Tate's Compass Company.

Shortly after the company opened, the company won a large contract to manufacture 200,000 compasses for the Boy Scouts of America. The employees worked feverishly day and night to meet the deadline and they completed the order just in time for the National Jamboree.

At the start of the Jamboree, each boy scout was given a Tate's Compass to help them find their way. Unfortunately, it was discovered that every single compass had a serious defect. North pointed to South and South ponted North. Every boy scout got lost and it was the largest fiasco known in Boy Scout history.

The Tate's compass company went out of business (of course), but from this experience came the familiar adage... "He who has a Tate's is lost." (Say it out loud)
