Relations between the United States and North Korea are languishing. After president Trump traded rhetorical jabs with officials in the rogue state on Tuesday, Pyongyang threatened a military strike on the United States territory of Guam.
Given the escalating situation -- and the very grim prospects of a potential conflict -- Jimmy Kimmel decided to gauge the public's knowledge of North Korean geography, asking people in Hollywood if they could identify the country on a map on last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Spoiler: they couldn't. Most people seemed to think that North Korea lies somewhere in the Arctic or the Americas (it doesn't). Nor does it lie in the Middle East, which happens to be very far away from North Korea. So in what amounted to the saddest game of "Pin The Tail On The Donkey" ever played, people giggle through their own ineptitude and probably regret ever agreeing to go on television. It's hard to watch.
