Geography Failure

I don’t really follow soccer – or football as my international friends call it – but it was pretty big news today to hear that Russia and Qatar won the hosting privileges for the World Cup in 2018 and 2022 respectively.

As it is with most breaking news, Twitter was ablaze within minutes, although there was something strange about how people were talking about it.

That’s right. The spelling of Qatar, the only country in the world starting with the letter Q, was wrong. Moments after the screen capture, “Katar” started trending as well. Where are these people learning geography?
