Some Britons Don’t Know Where It’s At

From Reuters

Nearly half the respondents in a British survey were unable to add the prices of a simple restaurant menu and one in six couldn’t pick out Britain on a world map, according to a poll in the Sunday Times.

The survey of 1,000 people showed 42% of those questioned were unable to total three items on a hamburger menu. About 17% could not find Britain on a map--placing it off the coast of North America or even in the Far East. And 7% thought the most direct route from Britain to Spain, located to the south, was east.
