Most of us by now know that America is the biggest banana republic since, well since the Mayflower landed, but surely you ask, since that great banana republicist himself  Al Gore invented the internet, surely surely our ol’ banana republic (which, for the sheer economy of syllable reduction, I have dubbed Shitland) has at least the fastest internet connection status in the world–I mean we’re not number one in most things anymore but of course we must have at least the fastest internet speed, right booby?–…….but alas, no, we are 18th, somewhere behind Slovakia and Iceland.

Update: good news. I believe we are pulling ahead of the South Pole.
