    'tis also a bit of a worry when you look at the viewers comments!!!

    Joe proves they are not all like those folk in the video.... a trifle verbose he may be, but still as sharp as a tack.

    I love it.
    Doesn't surprise me at all. When I was there I found them geographically challenged.
    I was in a bar in the States one lunch time and overheard these guys talking about the fight they had the night before. Anyway I ended up talking to one of the guys. He told me how he had been on drugs for about ten years but what floored me was he new more about NZ than anyone else I met there.
    I was traveling on a bus next to these two old ducks and finally one of them asked me where I came from. When I said NZ she said that I spoke very good English. I kept quiet as I thought some one might tell her she was a sill old ***** because all NZrs speak English but the further I traveled the less I thought that would happen.

    Hmmm. Interesting - I was thinkin' to myself that the vid was shot inside an LSD Is Good For You; Users & Relatives Conference.

    Seriously, I think they were all pot heads being interviewed. Although on second thought they are prolly some of the current crop of college and high school graduates who are pretty close to sure that their names are spelled with a capital letter somewhere.

    I'm not too sure of the old lady though - perhaps White Lightning really IS bad for your gray matter.

    UN-fortunately for them, they have prolly risen to the top of the slag heap under which they were born.

    I am fortunate to have had a really good East Coast (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut) education where we actually leant to reed and rite gud.

    Is verbal anacoluthonic-ism even a word? These 'people' had to be short bus riders. < sadface >

    I think that there was selective editing going on. Anybody who gave an intelligent answer must have been edited out.

    There were a lot of humorous answers. Intelligent or correct answers have no entertainment value.

    It wasn't just the old lady though because the old guy didn't know what Nagasaki was known for.

    I'm pretty sure you'd be able to find enough idiots to make a video the same length in this country too, and in fact, probably in all countries.

    For example, I once overheard a couple of people who were scared to get on an amusement ride because they thought if you went upside-down all your blood would go straight into your brain and kill you...

    Somehow the fact that all the people ahead of the them weren't actually dead after riding must have escaped them.

    Are you saying all that blood in the head doesn't kill you?
