    Good Lord. Unbelievable. And, you’re right, so depressing.

  2. Anne-Marie says:

    This was done on The Man Show a few years ago at a Southern Cal mall with adults.

    It’s hard having smart kids when their parents are just as ignorant.

    Ho hum.

  3. Karen E. says:

    Depressing. Funny. Ultimately depressing.

  4. Beth says:

    Ewwww. Funny, yes, in a horrible sort of way. But … ewwww.

    **sigh**

  5. Jamie says:

    Yikes. We just had on Schoolhouse Rock the other day. Kind of makes me want to turn it up a notch.

  8. Jennifer says:

    Unbelievable! Well, actually it is believable, thus we educate.

    I thought it was funny, but then my own 14yo turned out not to know what suffrage meant. Instant history lesson…I’ve linked to the video.

    The sad part is that at one point in the clip a guy friend of the girl signing the petition tells her what suffrage means and she seems to ignore him. What is going on?
