To brighten your day and spread geography joy, I post geography-inspired jokes now and then. Keep reading below for geographic tidbits related to today’s joke. Enjoy:)
Q: Why don’t you see penguins in Great Britain?
A: Because they’re afraid of Wales.
Great Britain is an island that contains three semi-autonomous regions: England, Scotland, and Wales. Together, with Northern Ireland, these regions/countries make up the United Kingdom.
Wales is a region/country on the island of Great Britain, which politically united with English in 1536.
If this sounds confusing, listen to my British Isles geography song. It outlines Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England so that you never forget the countries that make up this politically unique region.
