Dumb and Dumber

Not that I think any other country would fair any better but a UK survey has revealed how much people are ignorant of agricultural facts. For starters 26% of youngins thought bacon came from sheep, 29% thought oats grew on trees and 17% of adults and kiddies thought eggs were an ingredient of bread. The survey was conducted for the Home Grown Cereals Authority and the National Farmers’ Union. Hmm, seems they have a little bit of PR work ahead of them. Meanwhile over in OZ a list of bizarre Oz tourism questions revealed pretty much the same type of ignorance….”Can I catch a train from Fiji to New Zealand?”, “Can you get Australian money out of ATMs overseas?” and my favorite, an Aussie asked “What was the duty free allowance in Tasmania?”

    I bet the last question was asked by a Tasmanian. Tassie Two Heads as they are affectionately called. As bad as the damned Kiwis lol

  3. I can’t tell you how many people in Florida asked me how long it took to drive to Europe. It’s getting the point where people are proud of their ignorance.

    • Hey Scott, don’t leave me hanging …how long ?

      Yeah hell Scott … PLEASE … it’s important I find out this information. You see, there’s this very important guy that I’d love to see, and he’s moving to Florida this weekend. I just want to know how long it would take me to drive to Florida from South Africa via Europe?

  4. When I was in a bar in Mexico, this guy started chatting me up and asked where I was from. I said “Canada”.

    He said “Oh really? Do you know a guy named Phil?”
