Shut up, this video is from a cartoon show geared toward little children, I'm sure they will memorize the whole thing and recite by heart for the rest of their lives after watching that video.

I do like how they added cities in there too, they are also important.

Plus, how the hell do you add Singapore in a rhyme?

Singapore isn't mentioned, and neither are East Timor, Eritrea, and Vatican City (Micro Country)

Burma is now Myanmar, and this video is terribly out of date.

Along with flame bait and mud slinging.

What he's trying to say is all American's are knuckle dragging neanderthals that we can't find our collective asses with a road map and a flashlight.

OOOO, you're slick. You are going to ask a question about a country that has an official capitol and one that is a de-facto one and kinda is still in some respects. So if an American picks the old capitol, you would intentionally call it out and shout that "Oh, if you are so good at geography, why don't you know that you stupid American"

I see how this one would work.

Dude...If you think all Americans are bad in Geography, I suggest you walk around the streets where ever you ( Argentina possibly) are in the world, and ask some random person on the street, and ask him or her what the capital of Bhutan is and see if they come back with the right answer, and when (in all likely hood) they give you a wrong answer, come back and tell us, and we'll say Argentinians suck at Geography too.

Your stupid little quizzes are really dumb. Anyone here can go to Wikipedia and find out whatever they want.

Alex ordinarily I am amongst the first to crack a quick joke about American ignorance. But I don't feel any genuine disdain towards Americans and I actually know my geography, these two factors distinguish me from you. The fact that you have googled the answers to GSM763's questions and failed to get them correct is hilarious. It's Bandar Seri Begawan champ.

YOWza, I was going to cut him a break. I didnt know whether Bandar Seri is was short, and people, when using this conversationally would drop the 'Begawan'.

So then he got two of my questions wrong.
