Tony who?

After all he’s done for them, worked his fingers to the bone, changed our foreign policy, got us involved in wars his fellow subjects were against, he even prays (allegedly) with their President, and what gratitude does he get?  Tony B’s less well known than Harry Potter in the US

My favourite statistic from the article is 74% of Americans could name the three members of  the Three Stooges – Larry, Curly and Moe – as against 42% who could correctly name the three branches of the US government – the judiciary, the executive and the legislature.   Montesquieu and Groucho will be turning in their graves.

  1. To be fair, what percentage could name their own president? đŸ˜‰
    (and reciprocally, what percentage of Airstrip One residents could name Bush? ;))
