This video proves that either the education system has tremendously failed us, or that the guy in the video who thinks New Orleans is a state, slept through geography class.

The two brother’s argue it out in the video above, as one explains to the other that New Orleans is a city in Louisiana, to which he responds “You gotta pass Louisiana to get to New Orleans.” The brother gets frustrated and calls the other an idiot, amongst other things I won’t type.

Though I know people from NOLA who would be fine with the notion, the brother’s persistence that New Orleans is separate from Louisiana is wrong. We all know it’s wrong, because we didn’t sleep through geography class, and we know how to Google for uncertainty. To the guy in the video I say, your knowledge of where the City of New Orleans sits on the map is more wrong than an alligator at a dog show, sir. What’s wrong with his medulla oblongata? That would be my final question.
