After killing three members of the same family who were staying at his house, officials said the 34-year-old gunman left the property and fatally shot seven local residents using the same hunting rifle.

I asked them nicely to stop texting and tweeting during dinner. Did they listen? NO! It's my house, goddamnit! I had to do something! In hindsight, I probably shouldn't have killed the neighbors.

/But, but he was stopped by a good guy with a gun!

Fun Fact:  Montenegro was the homeland of Rex Stout's wonderful fictional detective, Nero Wolfe.  (Stout wrote mystery novels featuring Wolfe and his assistant Archie Goodwin from the 30's through the 70's.)

Name them.

I know it's not Monaco or Liechtenstein, but there ain't many people there. It's a (non-microstate) country with population ~600k and even that seems high. Not much seems to happen there - at least stuff that makes the news.
I was trying to come up with something from a joke about how Montenegro is just 23 people on a hill arguing over whether they are Serbs, Albanians, Bosnians, etc. Putting the nationalism angle in was not working and wtf else is there to gently poke fun at relating to Montenegro? I stand by my headline.

The orchids are fine and while Fritz is glad that Mr Wolfe is keeping busy, is saddened to hear of the news and excuses himself to attend to lunch.

1) Wrong data. This is ranking by area - the joke was about population. (Furthermore I noted that it was not a microstate - so the population is low and sparse.)
2) Wrong interpretation. This area ranking does not show 70 (or 74) countries below it. Yes Montenegro is bigger than Saint Barthélemy, Gibraltar, and the Wallis and Futuna Islands, but those and many others are not by any stretch countries. In fact only 39/74 on that list below Montenegro are countries - 29 are just tiny islands, a few more are mainland microstates, and the remaining 4 are just small (Brunei, Palestine, Lebanon, and Qatar).
3) It's just a joke.

/btw, by population it is 30th, behind Belize, Suriname, and a bunch of those same little islands.
//the history of the kingdom of Montenegro (up to 1919) is kinda funny

Yeah that whole area is a shiatshow. I don't know who invented "let's kill them because they use a different nickname for the same god we pray to" or whatever petty bullshiat they use to justify trying to ethically cleanse one another, but the Baltic countries have been at it for centuries.

Robodog already beat me to it.  I actually rounded down.  By population it's a bit lower down, but it's hardly a microstate.  It's just one people forget about because a lot of us are old enough that we didn't learn it in school because it was part of Yugoslavia at the time.  I mean there are 12 countries smaller than it just in Europe.

HoratioGates: I mean there are 12 countries smaller than it just in Europe.

Well, two of those are 'the portion of a much larger country that lies within Europe', so we're down to 10. And two of them have an area of 0 area, and are listed 'it is considered European owing to its political, cultural and historical ties with Europe' - of which one is larger than Montenegro, and the other is split between countries that are part of Montenegro, so we're down to 8. And one of those is disputed and not officially recognized. So, really, 7. So, 39th out of 46.

The term micronation is apparently used for unrecognized countries, so that would definitely not be appropriate for Montenegro. But it's smaller that many counties in the US, so... you can't honestly fight too hard against someone pointing out that it is small.

(By the way, you posted the same link twice.)
