Good on Nachos, Too!

Chile: Preventing Argentina from Enjoying the Pacific Ocean Since 1818.*

Source: This is the title of the article on Chile in Our Dumb World: The Onion's Atlas of the Planet Earth, 73rd Edition.

Other highlights include "France: One Nation Above God," "Iraq: They Had It Coming," and "Canada: For The United States, See Pages 9-22."

*Please note that this post pertains to Chile with an "e" and a capital "C", not chili with an "i" and a lower case "c". While chili with an "i" and a lower case "c" has most certainly had ill effects on most of those who have partaken in it, as have chiles with an "e" and a lower case "c", they have not (to my knowledge) ever prevented Argentinians from enjoying the Pacific Ocean. Furthermore, Chile with an "e" and a capital "C" cannot be eaten. If it was edible, it would have been consumed by General Augusto Pinochet in 1981.

Yea I know what you mean. Last night at a cafe I ordered a dessert and got a desert. And I hate the taste of sand. And with whip cream and a cherry on top, it didn't make it taste any better.

Mmmm... desert.

You may be wondering what happened to the poll I had up on the site. Apparently the poll HTML doesn't play nice with some browsers, so I scrapped it. To the two of you who voted, thanks for taking pleasure in my misery.
