Why people believe Americans are stupid

Since today's theme seems to be stupidity, it's a great time to share this video with you.

It's called "Why People Believe Americans are Stupid."

Among the things these Americans on the street believe:

  • Yugoslavia, Utah and Utopia are three countries that begin with the letter U.
  • Fidel Castro is a singer.
  • We won the Vietnam War.
  • A triangle has no sides.
  • Jerusalem, Florida, California and Germany are countries in the "Axis of Evil."
  • Al Quaida is a wing of the Masonic orders.
The man who introduces himself as John Howard, Prime Minister of Australia is not, in fact, John Howard, Prime Minister of Australia.

My thanks to W. Bro. Tom Bowersox of Marion Lodge No. 6 in Marion, Iowa for sending me the link to this video.

  1. So you're just into general self-loathing and America bashing all around, I take it. Why, it's almost as sidesplitting as Borat.

    Yeah, funny, funny stuff. I suspect if you set up a camera in front of the Sydney Opera House you'd discover 8 out of 10 of Australians couldn't name an opera to save their lives.
