It seems that the geographically challenged have been confudling their Czechs and Chechens this week. You can see why the Czech Ambassador to Washington would want to clear up any misunderstandings/smack a few idiots around the head with an atlas. Events this week can easily result in someone being attacked for having a funny accent.
It reminds of Euro ’96 and the evening England lost to Germany in the semi-final. You know the idiots will be come out after something like that, and lo a German student was stabbed in Brighton after the match (he survived). Except he was Russian and not German, a subtle detail probably lost on top-level idiots.
This week’s mix-ups have been on social media, which goes to show that you can lead an idiot to all the information in the world but an idiot is still an idiot.
