Geography Lesson

Amusing yet sad.

Dismaying though that is, I'll play the party-pooper, and point out that that segment comes from an Australian satirical TV comedy program; and that particular vox-pop was part of a weekly running gag, somewhat in the style of Rick Mercer's "Talking to Americans", where the sole function of the Australian "reporter" was to wander the streets of some US city looking for Americans whose ignorance he could make fun of, basically. Cruel but amusing.
