4 for me :blush: - but I’m a foreigner.

I bet that most Americans wouldn’t do as well on a British citizenship test.

I also got 8, but I'm ok with that. I know what the Federalist Papers are, if not who all the authors were, and I know what the Amendments have done even if I can't tell you offhand exactly how many there are.

Now, here's something I did NOT know - the story of Brother Jonathan, a precursor to Uncle Sam: https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/brother-jonathan-uncle-sam

Before America Got Uncle Sam, It Had to Endure Brother Jonathan

Brash, bold, and bigoted, he made for an uneasy national mascot.

My wife got 9/10. We took it collectively with my Dad.

I think I would have gotten at least 8/10 (but maybe not 9, and definitely not 10).

9/10... I flubbed the one about who did and didn't author the Federalist Papers.

I thought the Federalist Papers author(s)/non-author question was the hardest, and I'm sure I would have missed it.

Indeed I'd have no excuse not to know John Jay!  Then again I've had a copy of the Federalist papers on my shelves since 1985, I'd say.

I can't think of John Jay without auto-switching to Joey Jay.

And that's the beauty of the American Experiment!

That sanctimonious asshole Brother Jonathan had not a chance against an herbaled and cerealed multi-racial force of  smiling shit-chasers!

U S A !!!
