heheheee. I cant believe not one person from the US thought of the US as a country starting with U..
Also, since when is Iran the shape of Australia. LOL

Whatever. People who think their countries general population could do significantly better are fooling themselves. The average Canadian is just as dumb.

I'd be curious to know how random Europeans and Australians would do.

That said, I'll admit to knowing the answers to all of the questions. On the other hand, my first "U" country was Uganda! *laugh*

Reminds me of Rick Mercer's "Talking to Americans".

No, I also came up with Uruguay first, then Uganda. I didn't even think of U.S. until he said it. And I'm a geographer -- hah!

BTW, nobody has mentioned "United Kingdom".

United Kingdom to me isn't a country.

But that video is just scary.

Geez, now I feel MUCH smarter :-)

On DPC, isn't the only relevant country Iceland? ;)

I think that's hysterical! No-one picked up that the countries had been renamed. What th...????

Actually it's because of the show street smarts.
01/12/2007 07:32:08 PM · #22
For some reason my first U was UAE :-)

Oh by the way, i've been looking for a video project to work on, and this would be perfect. I'll just only show people who know the answers. Originally I thought i'd go to europe and only show dumb people, but that costs too much money.

It is not just a belief, it is an observation, especially when politicians are considered!
01/12/2007 07:40:01 PM · #25
I know it doesn't start with "U" but the first thing I thought of was the sign Homer made for Apu that said "Get Eurass back to Eurasia!"
