Keep up the good work, ladies. If you don't fight ignorance, who will?

Two girls are talking about Rick Mercer's Talking to Americans.

Girl #1: That show is hilarious. I saw one where they asked Americans how they felt about Canada finally becoming a part of North America. Then they got them to fully congratulate Canada and stuff, on air!
Girl #2: Ugh, dumbass Americans. They're all just so ignorant.
Girl #1: I know, like, what the hell? Don't they learn about North America in, like, grade 8 geography? I mean, hello, North America has TWO countries, people!!!
Girl #2: Yeah, seriously!

You're no suggesting that Mexico should be considered part of North America, right? I hope you're not suggesting that.

Hey, anything south of Mexico is pretty much the same as Mexico, no? They should all just merge into one big country full of leftist nutbars with Hugo Chavez as president.

Well, when most of us went through early geography, mexico was often concidered part of 'central america' that they don't put on maps anymore.

...Holy fuck.
I thought the article itself was sad.
But the comments are more depressing.
Is there hope left in this world?

North America, third largest of the seven continents, including Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The continent also includes Greenland, as well as the small French overseas department of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon and the British dependency of Bermuda.

Ooh Encarta wins again!

But wait... there is more.

Central America is made up of a long, tapering isthmus that forms a bridge between North and South America. Central America, which is defined by geographers as part of North America includes the countries of Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama.

Ivey bitches are nothing more than communists. They all dress alike, and are always discussing "production" and "workers"

Wow. It's sad, but you still can't stop talking about Ivey students. GET OVER IT. The more you talk about us, the more "pompous" we're going to get. Do you see us talking about other faculties? I can assure you that we don't. Because we don't care.

Just to set the record straight, again, Mexico is indeed part of North America. Central America is a term from the old classification system.

Ivey students are communists? Come on, you can't be serious. You know that communism and capitalism are mutually exclusive, right?

Mexico is definitely part of North America. And the travel section at Chapters definitely has it wrong.
