FOX News Puts Egypt on the Wrong Continent!

Do you ever just scratch your head in utter disbelief pondering how so many Republicans can have their heads up their asses? Maybe one contributing factor might be they spend too much time watching FOX News.

From the July 27 edition of The Live Desk, some genius at FOX News actually placed Egypt on the wrong continent! Just in case you’re wondering, Egypt is in Africa and not where Iraq belongs.

    Isn’t that where Iraq is supposed to be on the map? I shouldn’t be surprised by anything FAUX News says or does. It’s a damned freakshow.

    Christopher – Hahahahahaha!

    Are you sending this to Keith Olbermann? You should. He would enjoy it and I bet he will use it in his ‘Worst Persons’ segment.

    but it’s easier to see Russia from Cairo now.

    That’s awesome. I’ve been approached by Fake News, Inc more than once to work for them and I keep turning them down. Looking at this just reaffirms the decision I’ve made was a good one.

    (although, knowing them, they probably had some overworked, completely stressed out intern constructing their art for that one)

    No wonder they think the Caribou Barbie is the most accomplished politician since FDR.

    This isn’t the first time FOX has been, shall we say, a little confused. Everytime a Republican lawmaker gets in trouble, under his picture they label him a Democrat!

  6. Mauigirl says:

    That is hilarious but scary. You definitely should send it to Keith Olbermann!

    Oh.
    My.
    God!

    Too funny!

    Jeesh. Palin must be teaching the class. Wasn’t she the one who said Africa wasn’t a continent?

  9. fairlane says:

    I bet the Egyptians woke up freaking the fuck out.

  10. Randy Arroyo says:

    ROFL! An instant classic! I bet the FOX producer is Carrie Prejean. This reeks of something she would do.

  11. Why are you surprised? FOX put Saddam in the middle of the 9/11 planning, and we know that was bullshit too. Amazing that they get away with this shit. Their viewers obviously have no shame.

  12. R.J. says:

    I blame it on the public school systems in the South. I deal with people who don’t understand 4,000 is more than 2,000 even if you erase the zeros.

    I have to start checking in here in the afternoon now in addition to each morning. I keep missing some of the best stuff! This is an embarrassment and a pleasure all at once! I always knew FOX had it’s head up it’s, you-know-what, but this is a new level of carelessness. I laughed out loud when I saw the map.

  14. Charles Pierson says:

    You’ve never heard of Continental Drift?

  15. michael says:

    You certainly don’t think a civilization as evolved and important as ancient Egypt could exist on the African continent do you?

    That’s the message I think Faux is sending.

  16. Kmuzu says:

    I always thought they purchased those maps from some graphic design company. Didn’t know FOX was so cheap they would have their own idiots create the CG

  17. redman says:

    Does anyone else think the area where Egypt should be looks an awful lot like the Cali, Nevada, and Arizona border?

  18. tommy says:

    redman- good point! that certainly isn’t the northeast africa i learned about in school…

  19. kelly says:

    the middle east is not a continent. change your title.

  20. the middle east is not a continent. change your title.

    Kelly,

    What don’t you understand? Egypt is in Africa.

    Egypt does not belong in Asia. Buy a globe or STFU.

  21. Idaho Librul says:

    Kelly – Christopher got it correct.

    FIXED Noise, as usual, got it wrong.

    What continent do you want to see Egypt placed? I know: South America! What a moron.

  22. Whitney says:

    I’ve always hated Fox News. It’s kinda like the b*stard son of CNN and The Onion.

    And Kelly, you’re right that the Middle East isn’t a continent in itself, but it’s part of the continent of Asia, so the title is still perfectly accurate.

    Oh, and no, it looks nothing like the border between CA, NV, and AZ. The boarders are too jagged.

  23. kevin says:

    the scariest thing of all is…. republicans.. the common republican on the street is “anti-intellectual”! they look down their nose at people who THINK…..they like their news to be propaganda, their god to be vengeful, their moralistic judgemental politics in black and white and their leaders to be delusional, deity worshiping, “plain spoken” hillbillies. they march in lockstep…… not many free thinkers in the republican party. and their women… good god their women…. their “whats my opinion again honey?” wives. they are all tooo stupid to be allowed to reproduce. what is scariest is… they are the ones with all the guns and their tenor is just above inciting violence. right now, they are bordering on treason.

    funny c*** up!!

  25. Baba says:

    Wikipedia has categorised Egypt as a transcontiental country, falling between Asia and Africa.
