mainstreet62: SOUTH KOREA?!??! FARK!

Their speedskaters are the fuel for so much of my rage this Olympics.


If it makes you feel any better, they're very angry at American speedskaters.  Have been for years.  They're still fuming about events that happened years ago.

CleanAndPure: Wisconsin tied with England because of Cheese?

England makes some nice cheeses but wouldn't France, Italy or Switzerland be a more accurate match?


Because they'd have to be REALLY drunk to be slumming it with us here...

Everyone hates New York

Everyone hates New York


And NY hates everyone, so suck it.

Wisconsin... You know: fish, chips, cup 'o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary farking Poppins......

Yes, Alabama's social and religious sensibilities would certainly find favour in Finland.

That's so stupid and pointless it might as well be a Buzzfeed article.

TIL: Brunei is the one country in the world that no one likes or respects.

CleanAndPure: Georgia linked with Italy because of peaches? Georgia produces less peaches than SC, Alabama and California.

There is one county in South Carolina produces more peaches than the entire state of Georgia.

California poops on everyone in terms of total output.

The what now? England makes nice cheeses? When did this happen? English cheese might be a slightly higher quality of plastic then the us is used to but cheese it is not.

Also Italy and Swiss? Pure bunglers compared to the Dutch. Only the French are surpass is in cheese making and that's only because they focus on runny smelly cheeses that no decent god fearing man would ever hold truck with.

equusdc: ciberido: AbiNormal: It doesn't surprise me that NoDaks drink more than Czech's, there isn't anything else to do.

Fun fact: people from the Czech Republic love country music.  You haven't lived until you've heard a cover of a Kenny Rogers song performed in Czech --- Ideally while inside a bar full of drunken Czechs who can laugh at your amazement and befuddlement.

I'm really not sure whether that makes the Czech Republic more or less like North Dakota, however.

Prague Saloon Amerika. Bad: We're going to a tourist trap. Worse: Bouncer on steroids in full leather covered in tats. Gay tourist trap, friends are clueless. Fark: Staight retirement home townie bar with live band and dancing.

The Minnie Driver scene from Goldeneye was never the same...


If I found myself on my deathbed tomorrow, one of my biggest regrets would be never having been to any part of what was at one time known as Czechoslovakia.  The few Czech people I've known have been cool --- but really all I know about that part of the world is what I've been told, plus a few photographs.  I would very much have liked to have seen it.

Then again, I'm not dying of anything right at the moment, so maybe I will get there someday.

(If anyone cares to know, the Czech bar in question was in Ulaan Baatar.)

Finland is the world leader in education, but it's paired with Alabama because of Athletes/Winning. I think Alabama should be paired with Charlie Sheen, becuase, you know...winning.

Lets look at 2 colleges recent winnings in a single sport and compare it to 300 medals in a multitude of sports, seems like a good comparison.

Apparently Mt Rainier is either in Maine or Canada.

redsquid: List is fail- Florida would totally hit Australia, Greece or the Philippines.


As a recent Florida transplant from CT, I approve.

Especially the Greek. Just the thought of it makes our flaccid looking state start arching towards Virginia.

/PhilGreekAus. Just saying.

bighairyguy: When I saw it, my first thought was "Alex, what is: overrun with government contractors?".


Yeah, and that would have been a good joke, but when you go to the source material...

I had no idea what RI stood for but now that I know - I am all for the Australian comparison *passes the dutchie too the left hand side*

Truth be told, Maryland would probably hit it with Belgium while sober. Beer, old bay and crabs are just made for each other. Lager goes better than a trappist tripple, but pick your battles, ya know?

I just had the thought that someone out there might think this article was the funniest thing ever. That made me sad.

wxboy: Michigan is with Panama because they both have a city named Colon?  That's pretty damn weak, even by blog standards.  Obviously the most logical choice would be Japan because cars, or some Pacific island nation because water.  But Panama?  Come on...


Before I even clicked I thought Michigan would be compared to some middle eastern country just because of Dearborn.

brantgoose: Kevin72: They have Michigan as Panama because both have a city named Colon....and they fail to see that Michigan is divided by water as is Panama by the canal?????????? Great choice but incredibly dizzbrained reason by missing the obvious.

No. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, yes.

They're not both states with cities named Colon. They are colons!

And that's not water!

Bazinga!

Forgive me. I have cousins in Michigan.

They are listed in the US Census as Italians. And they spelled their names wrong. Apparently they don't recognize Old Colonial American names there.

Michigan. It's Canada's penis and America's glove. No glove, no love, eh?


I live in Michigan and had to look up where Colon is.
It's a little town of 1,100 + so close to the Indiana border you can see Ft. Wayne on the southern skyline (not really).
Yes they have a Magic festival - every small town in Michigan seems to have some kind of tourist draw festival.
Witness the Cherry Festival in Traverse City, the Posen Potato festival, and the Mesick Mushroom festival to name a few.
I guess Panama is a good enough choice by the criteria of similar city names -  we also have Hell, MI so it could've been worse.

/A frozen Hell this morning...
//I hadn't heard the particular combination of penis - glove combined into one metaphor. I'm totally stealing that.

The bologna festival in Yale, Michigan was always fun. Yes there is a Yale, MI and they celebrate bologna.

jaylectricity: blatz514: Common Bond:  Head Cheese / Bing Drinking

WTF is "Bing Drinking?"

It's where you google a liquor to find out what kind of shot to do.


I know the term for doing that for beer is Leinengoogling. Is there a good term for internet-booze-searching? Hmm.

So the first one already made me want to stop, but I scrolled to NJ cuz I'm curious.

NJ=Poland because Jersey Shore.

My parents have friends from Yale, I'll have to ask them about that.

Gary-L: I'm in Oklahoma, which that blog equates to Thailand.

I've been to Thailand, and although both Oklahoma and Thailand may incarcerate women at higher than average rates the comparison stops there.  The women in Thailand are a lot better looking, have their teeth, and rarely, if ever, tip the scales over 105lbs.


Oklahoma City and Bangkok are both well-known for rampant prostitution, too.

Yeah that was pretty lame. You could also go with Greece because of the financial condition of Detroit.
