The Sheer Idiocy We Breed in the USA

My brother Alex, his friend Max, and I went to Osco to buy some water. While the woman at the checkout counter started ringing up our order, I asked her if anyone had won the $180 million lottery.
To which she replied, “Someone won it. It was $215 million. They were from Idaho or Iowa… one of those farming countries.”

We stifled laughter as we were leaving with our drinks.

Later, I told Nicole about it, and she said there were two especially amusing things about what the check-out lady said:

1) Iowa and Idaho are states, not countries.
2) Wisconsin is ALSO a farming state, and the clearly dim woman had no inkling that she lived in a “farming country,” as she liked to call it.
