i think that's the idea. this would make a great shirt cause people would ask you what it means all the time!

Really Sad.
I think the most tragic thing about the comments, and a twist on the actual design concept, is the fact that both Mexicians & Canadians are "Americans".... (it also might skew the numbers if you take it in to account).
In some parts of the Central America ie Guatemala they will argue with you if your stupid enough to call yourself an "American". In Guatemala the name for a United States citizen equates to "United Statesian".

Yes. We never bother to find out where something is until we are going to bomb it. My geography of Persia is excellent, but I need Mapquest to find anything more than 80 miles away.

The figures are exaggerated for effect but there is "some" truth anyway. Sad.

If you're going to say that others are stupid, please learn the appropriate uses of "your" and "you're".
