    I feel like the US has been getting a bad rep for too long now. It's time we poke fun at some other less fortunate countries. In the spirits of Jeff foxworthy let the joking begin:

    You're a crappy country if...

    Your source of running water has crocodiles
    The closest source of water might be underground
    The person on your currency is possibly still alive and at large

    If you still have "villages"
    Was at one time or currently a part of the USSR
    You were surprised to find out that US citizen are not officially called Capitalistic pigs
    The AK47 is the primary weapon of your armed forces (I'll catch heat for this)

    1. You refine heroin for a living, but you have a moral objection to liquor.

    2. You own a $3,000 machine gun and $5,000 rocket launcher, but you can’t afford shoes.

    3. You have more wives than teeth.

    4. You wipe your butt with your bare hand, but consider bacon unclean.”

    5. You think vests come in two styles: bullet-proof and suicide.

    6. You can’t think of anyone you haven’t declared Jihad against.

    7. You consider television dangerous, but routinely carry explosives in your clothing.

    You can only use satellite phones
    Houses still have tin roofs
    Your leader has appeared on TV fully armed

    Blood diamonds are a major part of your economy
    They're still exhuming mass graves of your former leader's political opponents
    People burn the currency for heat
    Firing an AK into the air is a common form of celebration
    Your capital is Sacramento;)

    The only westerners in your country are mercenaries or ex pats

    Your cars run on mainly unrefined diesel
    Your number one export is illicit drugs
    Your continent resembled south America and/or Africa

    I did actually know that but that's the beauty of making ironic broad sweeping statements. Very little of it has to be based in reality. 90% of jokes are funny because of being timely rather than timeless

    More people in the country have cholera than are literate.
    Smallpox is still prevalent
    You go to the Shaman instead of a doctor
    There are more camels than cars
    It's normal to see tanks rolling down the street
