After watching on the news for the 1, 789, 377th time a tidbit about Americans getting fatter and proudly pointing out Southerners are the most rotund of all Americans, the broadcast then followed up with a video clip for the one billionth time of perky, blond, very thin Miss Teen South Carolina answering the question why a certain percentage of Americans can not locate the United States of America on a map.
After brilliantly babbling on for several painful minutes about “U. S. Americans” “Osama” “South Africa” and “Iraq” “and the Asian countries” among other things, her dazzling dissertation was over.
I’ve decided the answer to the problem is…brain starvation…sad, but true.
Yeah, I know…dark humor, Bev…but, please…do not let this happen to your teen!
