National Ignorance about the Chechens to Remain High

Tired of forwarding this Onion article


about Chechens and of receiving such inane emails as the ones below:

1. Looks like they might have arrested the wrong Chechen. This one was delivering a half sausage half anchovy for Dominos when they grabbed him!


2. If this guy rings your bell, he is NOT delivering pizza! Repeat: he is NOT the pizza man!


TPV called our BFF at the White House and asked him to improve our public education. Unfortunately, his offspring attend the best private school money can buy in Washington D.C. and our call will remain unanswered.

However, TPV will sleep well tonight! Our drones will bomb some Russian town instead of the Czech border, because the Pentagon has learned the Chechens are closer to the Russians and have nothing in common with the Czechs.



  1. I thought this was particularly good : 

    [LA Times]

    “The accused perpetrators of these acts were not common criminals attempting to profit from a criminal enterprise, but terrorists trying to injure, maim and kill innocent Americans,” Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), John McCain (R-Ariz.) andKelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) and Rep. Peter T. King (R-N.Y.) said in a joint statement.

    The difference between good old American criminals, ( and possibly”legitimate” military adventure), and terrorists – these guys weren’t even trying to make any money! 

  2. Even if I’m enjoying it from the bottom. I’m as ignorant of Chechnya as I a of Cheyenne, needed the spell checker to find either and I’d need google maps to find Russia. Too late for a better education for me, any chance for reparations, or just a rebate?


    PS. It was fun (of a sort) listening to the very proper folks on public radio offer juicy geographic and geopolitical information interlaced with prudent reminders that it might not be at all relevant, as if we’d asked them to continual fill the air with sound, in case a lucky guess gave them a scoop.
