Feeling superior? View this. This is Miss Teen South Carolina 2007 answering a question from a judge on NBC over the weekend.
Let's take a quick quiz now on what we've just seen.
Q: Recent polls have shown 1/5 of Americans can't locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is?
A. 1/5 of Americans have the brains of an eggplant.
B. Our schools are underfunded.
C. I personally believe that US Americans are unable to do so because uh, some, uh, people out there in our nation don't have maps and, uh, I believe that our education like such as in South Africa, and uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as and. I believe that they should, uh, our education over here, in the US should help the US, or uh, should help South Africa, and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future for our children.
The correct answer is C.
Apparently, there is a PLANET South Carolina as well as a state, and I did not know that.
Really, let's just be generous in this time of need and have federal biologists come down and reclassify her as a flower. She looks pretty, probably smells sweet. Someone will pollinate her and it goes on and on and on.
Don't stop believin' and keep those rims shiny, folks!
UPDATE: She's on the Today Show Tuesday morning getting a second crack at the question. Actually, I thought she did a great job explaining how we have no maps because they were sent to The Iraq and The South Africa, so The US has none. Nonetheless, HOW will be taping and analyzing on tomorrow's show.
UPDATE ON UPDATE:
I'm wondering if listening to what she's saying makes me a loser. Hmmm. I think it does. I should be setting my alarm for 7am and preparing my special towel to lay on when the Today Show comes on.
