Rest easy. You could've done worse. Remember, this was a lightning round, so scores are doubled.

Bhutan (4): feenst, Tracer Bullet

Cambodia (4): CRM114, o18

Laos (4): The Bus, wmansir

Sri Lanka (4): mosquito, wishbone

I had some Sri Lankan food recently. Delicious.

Honestly, I think the question was vauge enough that the answers should count. Though in spirit I agree with Venusian.

Oh ho! There's Nick Danger and his answer of... French Indochina.

Sorry, Nick Danger! This, Ottoman Empire, and any number of countries that do not exist are a wrong answer. Five points to you!

One could argue that Myanmar doesn't exist either if one were so politically inclined to

I think it was pretty clear and the protesting parties answered the way they did to make waves. But technically they are correct.

I didn't answer the way I did to make waves. Being the 'reverse' sheep, I read too much into the question and figured there were more than the obvious 3 choices. If DoI was specifically cited, I would have answered differently. -John

I want to change my answer to Hank Johnson. I'm sure everyone forgot the resident Buddhist in the House.

All other answers unique.

Jeremy517 (Corrine Brown), wishbone (John Conyers Jr.), Birrman54 (Elijah Cummings), JasonF (Danny Davis), Red Dog (Donna Edwards), CRM114 (Chaka Fattah), Pharoh (Marcia Fudge), missflores (Alcee Hastings), TB (Eleanor Holmes Norton), DSC4 (Sheila Jackson), Rock (David Scott)

I apologize: I assumed Pharoh was being incredibly racist at first.
