CURRENTLY BEING OVERTHROWN IN ANANGRY POLITICAL UPRISING...

OFFICIAL NATIONAL BIRD IS AMOLOTOV COCKTAIL, OR...

(LAUGHTER)...POSSIBLY BECAUSE THE OLYMPIC

MASCOT, AN AMAZONIAN JAGUAR,ESCAPED AND HAD TO BE SHOT BY

THE ARMY BEFORE IT ATTACKEDPEOPLE.

THERE'S PIRANHAS, UH, ALSOMALARIA AND THE FACT THAT,
