Remember Green River soda? You can't find it every day, but when you do, it's kind of a treat, not unlike coming across a can of Mellow Yellow. Wouldn't you agree?

I have a crap geography knowledge, but I can sound smart pontificating about soda . . .

2. Yukon River. The Nenana River is way cooler though.

5. The Zambezi River. Do I get extra points for not only knowing that the Nyami Nyami is the Zambezi River god but for also having a Nyami Nyami necklace?

Kritkrat said...

D'oh! I totally knew 4. was the Mekong too. Not that it matters since the rest of them could all be the Mississippi for all I know...
