So, this is NOT Greece?

Well, that clears it up!


Eddie Izzard, my favorite stand-up comedian, quotes about geography for American audiences.


“I grew up in Europe, where the history comes from.”

“You do know there are other countries?”


(Talking about The Great Escape, where Steve McQueen rides a motorcycle from Germany to Switzerland.) 


“If you don’t know the geography, it goes Poland, Czechoslovakia, Holland, Venezuela, Africa, Beirut, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and then Switzerland…”
