Wheel of Fortune – New Zealand … New Mexico?

Yea, what’s our geography knowledge test scores rank again? I would hate to be an country who scored below us …

No, you don’t get just one guess, you get FOUR as all three geniuses missed this AND it went back to the dude who then then bought a vowel … though he did buy the right vowel … though Pat Sajak had to remind these guys they could buy a vowel …

BTW, two of the guesses were AVILAND and AACKLAND …

You can read the blow by blow (language NSFW) from the smokingjacket or view it in all its glory …

So, sorry New Zealand – we hope the earthquake recovery goes quick and we will try and visit AACKLAND, New Zealand – that is how you pronounce it, right?

BTW, the guy apparently walked away with $30k for his 22-minutes of heavy brain activity so lesson learned … er, spelling crazy foreign words means nothing … 😛

    Thanks for sharing some of these tidbits which have nothing to do with Cars. I find it refreshing and, for better or worse, enlightening. It’s not necessarily bad news that it took 3 people making 4 guesses (although the last was hardly a “guess”) to get it right, but it’s not very encouraging, either. We seem to know a lot about people and places that make news and the internet, but Auckland is hardly a hot ticket item, even though it’s been around a lot longer than Lady Gaga, Charlie Sheen and the state of Wisconsin.

    Pray for Japan.
