Natural or Man-made

I was being sent to Minneapolis for business. In talking with Meriam about my trip the following conversation took place:

Meriam: I don't remember where Minnesota is. Is it north, south, east or what?

I open Google maps to show the United States and point to Minnesota

Me: It's right here.

Meriam draws a line with her finger between Utah and Minnesota

Meriam: Oh look, you will be flying past the state with the big mountain that has the faces on it. Will you see it from the plane?

Me: You mean Mount Rushmore. I don't know if I will see it or not.

Meriam: So were the faces man-made or are they natural?

Me: Natural. Millions of years ago God decided to make a mountain look like four people who he would later let be born in different years and all become United States presidents.

Meriam: Really??

Me: No. I am kidding. Of course they're man-made.
