America the Weird – the Lunatic 20%

Recommended Posts

Seven percent of all American adults believe that chocolate milk comes from brown cows, according to a nationally representative online survey commissioned by the Innovation Center of U.S. Dairy.

 

 

As laughable as this sounds it goes against my contention that about 20% of Americans are flat out nuts. The percentage should have been higher. Then I read further into the article.

 

One Department of Agriculture study, commissioned in the early ’90s, found that nearly 1 in 5 adults did not know that hamburgers are made from beef.

 

 

Ah. My faith in American lunacy has been restored.

Personally, I find it charming that you think that most burgers are made from beef.

I, myself, try not to think too much about the "chicken" I get from Chinese delivery joints.

Hillary is stuffing the ballots from her spam server, slowing down the internet.

The Washington Post article described some of the other curious survey results. A significant number of people believe that onions and lettuce aren't vegetables for example.

 

Me? I'm glad wine is a fruit...

SMITH: As far as David remembers, by the way, 4 percent of Americans answered that they had been decapitated.

- 4% of voters say they believe “lizard people” control our societies by gaining political power

Really this measures the percentage of people who like trolling pollsters. I hope.

 

That or there are a lot of headless people walking around that are just invisible to me.
