Where in the World is Budapest, Hungary? Don't ask Kelly Pickler or Charlize Theron

The Canadian Press - Jan 23, 2008
BUDAPEST, Hungary - Budapest has invited Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron for an all-expenses-paid visit, after she reportedly placed the Hungarian capital in Turkey. Turkey's capital is Ankara. Theron had visited Turkey's largest city, Istanbul, ...

You think it is just Charlize Theron? No, no, no. It is also Kelly Pickler of American Idol fame, as seen here on Jeff Foxworthy's "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader." She's pretty sure Europe is a country, and where Budapest is not clear to her, let alone Hungary.

Before all the Europeans reading this get smug, remember that most Americans call tell you precisely where Hollywood, Miami, Detroit, Chicago, Peoria, Omaha, and dozens of others cities are here. The US is a big country in the news a lot, while Budapest rarely makes global newscasts.
