Argentina is located in South America, just south of Brazil. The larger, stronger and more beautiful Brazil is always overshadowing Argentina. Brazil gets the Olympics. Brazil wins 400,000 World Cup titles. Brazil gets all the rock stars trying to save its stupid rain forests. Brazil, Brazil, Brazil! Aaagghhh!!!
Here are a few things you need to know about Argentina, though you should really spend your time learning about the much more interesting and sexy Brazil:
- The economy of Argentina has yet to recover from its collapse in 2001, when the bubble burst in the formerly lucrative Nazi-hiding market.
- The musical “Evita” features the song “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina,” which was originally called “Take A Damn Chill Pill, Argentina, Jesus.”
- In the 1980s, Argentina lost the Falklands War to England. Yes, THAT England, the one that lost its empire years ago. I mean, come on, your middle school’s 6th grade soccer team could probably take England in a war.
