This Is Funny...

...or kinda sad, depending on your point of view:

Chechen is not Czech, Prague's envoy reminds
"That is the simple message that the Czech government wants Americans to know in the aftermath of this week's bombings of the Boston Marathon, allegedly by two brothers of Chechen origin.

The Czech Republic's ambassador to the United States Petr Gandalovic felt Saturday compelled to clear up what he called a "most unfortunate misunderstanding" that some Americans on Twitter have been guilty of in recent days.

"The Czech Republic and Chechnya are two very different entities," he said in a press release posted on his embassy's website Saturday."

"Americans are notorious for being geographically challenged, and historically get low scores for their knowledge of the globe."

Hilarious.
Would have been even funnier if some news caster on TV actually actually confused the two.

I've been to the states, I also get the impression they are, by and large, geographically challenged. At least the ones in Florida.

The lamestream media is too busy blaming Russia for the radicalization of the perps who did this.
