2nd Amendment - Wrap two arms in a bear hug around your right to bear arms
3rd Amendment - No third parties in my house. (No soldiers quartered in homes.)
4th Amendment - Four googly eyes watching us? This amendment says no.
5th Amendment - I'm taking the 5th on this one. (The Constitution says I can!)
6th Amendment - Crimes. Sickos. 666. The sick feeling of being accused of a crime.
7th Amendment - Civil trials. Seven is a more civilized number than six.
8th Amendment - No eight-legged spider torture, which would be cruel and unusual.
9th Amendment - Almost done. Did we leave anything out? The ninth will cover it.
10th Amendment - We did it! We made it to ten. Power to the people, right on!
