So…Stupid…

Back at MCHENRY for a brief spell and some show called Beauty and the Geek was on AFN (Armed Forces Network) in the EOD command hooch.  Now, I don’t really care for “reality shows” of any variety, but we have a pretty limited selection of channels, so take that into account…for whatever reason a couple of early twenty-something women had to answer questions about the U.S. Government and current events.  Each young lady had to answer three questions…now I understand that it can sometimes be hard to keep up with current events and whatnot but what I witnessed just about gave me an anuerism:

One of the young women was asked: “What is the capital of Iraq?”

Her first response was: “Could you please spell Iraq?”

Wha?

When pressed for an answer she finally replied: “Afghanistan.”

Afgh…whu…did she jus…guh?!

The word ‘vacuous’ comes to mind.

sigh
