Risk Champ Flunks Geography Test

by in Uncategorized


ALBANY, NY – Alfred Wu, the 13-year-old winner of the 2004 East Coast Risk Championship, flunked his 8th-grade world-geography test, social-studies teacher Jane Laurent reported Monday. “His test paper was filled with names like Kamchatka and Yakutsk, and the Ukraine spread over half of Europe,” Laurent said. “And, by his account, the U.S. is made up of only three states: Eastern United States, Western United States, and Alaska.” Last week, Wu received an “F” on a paper he wrote about Napoleonic military Stratego.

From The Onion. I found this to be hilarious, because I LOVE RISK.

    Hmmm, did you say KAMCHATKA?!?!?
    Naturally I think that is the most awesome game, and of course that boy should get an A in geography, he knew where Kamchatka is, although he might join certain others in not knowing where Kaliningrad is. 😉 Hope you’re enjoying California, I am sure you are.

    Marcus – you damn Ukrainian nationalist! Wanting to take over Europe! 😉
    Erin – yeah, actually, what’s funny is, when I read that article and saw the part about Kamchatka I thought of you. So, whenever I hear the word Kamchatka, I don’t think of volcanoes or military bases or whatever, I think of Erin…haha.
