Wow. I can't believe God Save the Queen did better than the Italian and French anthems.

I know that but almost all of it is (and Americans probably think Egypt is in Asia). I went for an in-the-news choice. I now realize that sheep don't read the news.

I can't argue with that. It's probably the best explanation of anything I've ever heard in this forum.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

And then there were the unique answers, many of which relate to countries without strong associations to phallic towers:

Djibouti (Djibouti)
Lunatikk

God Be With Our Suriname (Suriname)
Venusian

Het Wilhelmus (The Netherlands)
feenst

My Fatherland, My Happiness and Joy (Estonia)
orangecrush18

O Gloria Inmarcesible (Colombia)
The Bus

La Bayamesa (Cuba)
gmanca

Himno Nacional Mexico (Mexico)
chowderhead

Poland is not yet lost! (Poland)
Pharoh

Inno e Marcia Pontificale (Vatican City)
Rockmjd23

Surprisingly, only Venusian, feenst, and orangecrush18 googled

That would have been a good one to google. Could have easily picked up a point or 2.

Re: Politics Sheep: 4th Term

Nobody named the actual country (for this one). I would have counted it as a wrong answer if anybody had.

At the conclusion of this, does anyone have the results of the past Politics Sheep games? It would be interesting to see them all side by side.

(I already gave part of my reasoning for knowing the anthem I listed. My heritage may also have something to do with it).
