August 29th, 2007 · 29 Comments

Poor Lauren Caitlin Upton, this will be a month she’ll be trying to soon forget. Thanks to YouTube her on air blunder has been seen nearly 8 million times.

Aimee Teegarden “Recent polls have shown that a fifth of Americans can’t locate the US on a world map. Why do you think this is?”

Miss South Carolina Lauren Caitlin Upton
“I personally believe, that U.S. Americans,
are unable to do so,
because uh,
some, people out there, in our nation don’t have maps.
and uh…
I believe that our education like such as in South Africa,
and the Iraq,
everywhere like such as…
and, I believe they should uh,
our education over here,
in the U.S. should help the U.S.
or should help South Africa,
and should help the Iraq and Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future,
for us.”

Host Mario Lopez “Thank you very much South Carolina.”

In case for some strange reason you haven’t seen the video yet here it is.

    I watch the video and read the transcript when I’m having a bad day. It makes me laugh and feel better about myself…but mostly just laugh.

    I want to do a side by side comparison with Sarah Palin. Can we ask SP the same question and see if her answer is any less gibberish?

    […] Why do any of us give a shit?  These skanks are paid to gallivant around in stilettos, showing off their plastic tits and chemically-treated blonde hair in the minimum amount of clothing allowed by federal law.  They aren’t known for their intelligence and are usually, like, not the smartest US, uh, Americans because, uh, often, they don’t, like, have maps.

  • 11 Can't Say // Apr 13, 2010 at 5:58 pm

    Personally I think she just had no idea what to say- maybe she has stage fright and just said the first things that came to her mind.
    But darn, is that funny. And useful if we get asked a question we don’t want/know how to answer.
    “Mary, why don’t you have your homework done?”
    “I believe that my homework like such as in South Africa,
    and the Iraq,
    everywhere like such as…
    and, I believe they should uh,
    our homework over here,
    in the U.S. should help the U.S.
    or should help South Africa,
    and should help the Iraq and Asian countries so we will be able to build up our pencils,
    for us.”

  • 20 Nene Lala Chacha // Apr 21, 2011 at 3:17 am

    She reminds me of that stupid blonde that was on Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader that thought Europe was a country and that Budapest was in France. I still don’t understand why she would The Iraq instead of just Iraq. I still can’t figure it out.

  • 21 roger dodger // May 14, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    she’ll make a good trophy wife someday.

  • 22 Snarky McSnarklepants // Sep 30, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    If you listen closely, it’s actually “thy Iraq” both times. Why? No brain, that’s why.

  • 23 Dennis // Apr 26, 2012 at 7:29 am

    Young, dumb and full of cum…

  • 24 kb // Jan 8, 2013 at 8:34 pm

    Really Nene?? Out of all the gibberish she said, your takeaway is she
    said The Iraq instead of just Iraq?

  • 25 branko // Mar 17, 2013 at 3:08 am

    yeah it’s funny and horrible etc. but obviously the woman just totally freaked and had some sort of spontaneous mental collapse for some reason. only she knows why. I’ve actually seen the same exact thing happen to otherwise very bright people. well maybe not to this extent in their case, but people with 130-140 iqs who suddenly start speaking as if their iqs were 95-100. so if her iq is say 100-110 (average) and the same kind of thing happened to her…

  • 26 David // Jun 11, 2013 at 10:24 am

    Actually, She answered the question perfectly. I completely understand why a fifth of americans cannot locate the U.S. on a map.

  • 27 Ian // Jun 17, 2013 at 2:01 pm

    David, you nailed it! Exactly!

  • 28 fatdaddy // Jun 18, 2013 at 1:25 am

    She handled her brain fart like a champ. I’d like to see you do better.

  • 29 jmob // Jun 21, 2013 at 12:59 pm

    She sounded like Obama without a script.
