Do we really need a forum for that? Salty, Peter Borger, Syamasu, that lunatic with the perpetual motion thingy, you... It looks like we used to have a bunch of them around for giggles in the main forums. At least until Percy lost his sense of humor.

Or that she's really Rush Limbaugh in disguise?

"Not much of a disguise." [/MIB emulation mode] :D

Re: Name a country starting with 'U'...
It was pretty amusing. My #1 daughter said Uruguay, and I immediately thought of Ukraine. However, I always wonder when I see these kinds of jokes - especially videos - how many people got some or all of the questions right but (since the authors were trying to make a point) didn't make it on film.

I wonder how many average-moron-on-the-street Europeans could get those right as well? Or wrong if we're careful on the editing? I'll bet any amount of money you'd care to name that I could go to a working-class district in Cleremont-Ferrand, France, or Newcastle (or Middle Thumbswitch-on-Tiddles or the equivalent) in the UK, or Sidney, for that matter, and find enough ignorant morons to fill an identical video.

Of course, a lot of the respondants in that video had southern accents. The author may actually have something there... :D

Re: Name a country starting with 'U'...
i haven't the foggiest idea what the coalition of the willing is.

Outside of the obvious (US/UK/AU), there are a couple of East/Central European countries (Poland and Ukraine) who at least actually put in an appearance, and a whole pile of pissant little third world countries which haven't done anything but are trying to suck up to the US.

Coalition of the Willing is actually something of a joke in-and-of itself.

Heh. It's the famous "alliance" that Bush claimed proved the US had multi-lateral backing for the invasion of Iraq. :D
