Some navel gazing, Google Analytics driven trivia. All data since March 2010.

Winner gets a laurel and hearty handshake*.

    What are the top 3 African countries in terms of visits?

    Um, let’s see, uh…Ghana? And…uh…um…hmm…Ghana? And yeah, I think, yeah, that’s it – Ghana.

    • Barry Freed

      Just lightly ribbing you, JOP – no offense intended.

      • elm

        If Ghana fails to be in the top three, Otto better be offended!

        • Why would I be offended? There may be dozens of South African, Nigerian, Kenyan, or Egyptian lurkers.

        Nevis is going to be so mad at you — you will never be safe in the parish of St. John Figtree

      If Toronto doesn’t count

      ?????

      • Zebulon Pike

        Toronto is rightfully ours!

      • elm

        I refuse to accept the outcome of the War of 1812, as do all right-thinking Americans. All of Canada (well, exept the French-parts, which we don’t want) are really part of the US whatever those ‘Canadian’ aggressors may thinks.

        • redrob64

          Hey! You tried to take the French parts twice. You take it all or you get none of it!

          I had a Canadian housemate for a time, and once you start paying attention you notice all sorts of little slights – like an announcement at the departure gate that any passenger giving up their seat on an overbooked flight will receive a free round-trip ticket “to anywhere in the continental United States, including Canada”.

          On the other hand, at least back when I was paying attention to this my housemate had to shop around for the best phone plan to call that exotic land of Canada; Miami to Fairbanks was domestic long distance, and could be free, but Buffalo to Toronto was international long distance, and you were going to pay.

  • 1. Monaco, Bhutan, Central African Republic, Nauru, Tonga Turkmenistan and Sao Tome e Principe.

    2. Ghana, South Africa and Nigeria.

    3. Brazil

    4. Russia and Germany

    5. Canada – It’s Scott’s friends and family.

    6. Tokyo

    7. Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Iran

    I am trying to visualize what a Laurel & Hardy handshake would be.
    More witty and less painful than a Three Stooges handshake, I’m sure.

    • Anonymous

      Less complex than an Abbott and Costello high-five.

    • Until this comment I had never heard of Tokelau. I had to look it up.

      • Anonymous

        evidently it’s a non-self-governing territory so I would think it doesn’t count

  • Matt

    Everyone knows the answer to all European questions about countries is Vatican City, so I’ll just make that my answer for everything. Except, of course, where Ghana applies.

    And Toronto.

    • Zebulon Pike

      “Jen” turns out to be Benedict XVI. This explains why it’s so hard to make her stay banned . . .

  • Robert Farley
