Sorry folks, but I'm going to need a little help deciding which is the most retarded thing I've heard in the last few months.
Anonymous: So what do you guys use for money in Australia? The Euro?
Zander: WHAT? The Euro...as in the European dollar??
Anonymous: Whatever, shut up. I figured maybe you guys had it cause Australia is part of the Commonwealth.
Zander: Oh my god. What does the Commonwealth have to do with anything? Even Britain doesn't use the Euro.
Zander (reading trivia): What was the first country to give women the right to vote?
Person #1: Australia?
Zander: No, but you're close!
Person #2 (thinking VERY hard): Um...hmmm...
Person #2: Africa?
For the record, the answer to that question was New Zealand. Fine if you didn't know it, but I'm hoping that the vast majority of people would a) guess an actual country b) if they were to guess a continent (you know, just for kicks), maybe pick one where most people, men or women, can currently vote.
I also last week had to explain to a good friend (who is a freaking investment banker) that you lose money when you convert currency and that it is not, in fact, a free service that the government provides out of the goodness of their hearts. The best part is that I'm not sure she believed me at the end...
