Dumb Question of the Week

So, a lot of bloggers have a thing they do weekly. As a way to keep reader's interested and also to give me something to write about on a regular basis. Well, I've come up with my own. It's, "Dumb Question of the Week" (as seen by my blog post title). As an American expat in Sweden, I get a lot of the same questions, you know, the "standards", but sometimes....sometimes I get doozies. Usually they'll come about once a week, depending on how social I am. This new theme will be mostly focused on questions I get asked regarding America, our government, culture, food, religion, craziness, and overall awesomeness that comes with being American. We're crazy, it's just time to embrace the fact that we're not a normal society. Glenn Beck's bastardization and complete disrespect to Martin Luther King Jr. is a prime example of this. Anyways, back to the topic.

Well, last night, I had a good one. I mean, this was a whole conversation of ridiculousness, but I'll just leave it at this one question, and let your imagination go wild as to 1. How this question got brought up. 2. Why someone would ask me this. 3. How I handled this awkward situation. 4. Do you think I referenced South Park in this conversation?

"Does polygamy actually exist in America?"

The answer is - Yes, yes it does. And it is creepy and they made an entire fictional show called Big Love about it and then turned around and started filming a REALITY show about it. :)
