Did you know that there are 276.1 million cars in the United States? Which is 46,000 times the number of individuals in Tijuana seeing asylum. And you know what that means?!?!
If only Buzzfeed had thought this through a teensy bit more before writing and publishing this nonsense:
"There are, astoundingly, 14,794 golf courses in the United States, according to the National Golf Foundation — more than twice the number of the roughly 6,000 individuals currently in Tijuana seeking asylum," Khury Petersen-Smith writes https://t.co/naH8NuMA43

Wow, Buzzfeed, THIS was really dumb. Congrats!
Seriously. Here at Twitchy, we read some really dumb stuff, it’s part of what we do, and even WE are impressed with how absolutely ridiculous this comparison from Buzzfeed is.
And as one would expect, the thread following the tweeted article is comedy gold:
There are 5,498 bowling alleys in the United States, and 45,000 used car lots, and 90% of American homes have microwave ovens, and there are 1,362,000 guinea pigs in the United States and are we just citing statistics because I have more. https://t.co/fpsdkPlxv9

Whoa, that’s a lot of damn bowling alleys.
I have a goldfish.

Awww, that’s nice.
BTW, you're getting ratio'd AF here. 😉

What a dumb take…

That’s what we said.
The real scandal is that the number of BuzzFeed writers is greater than 0. At least the golf courses provide value.

Now compare asylum seekers to the number of trees in Central Park

Excuse us but we were told there would be no math.
Yup … And we Americans STILL spend more $$/year on pizza than is spent on NASA. Your point? You should rename your #FakeNews entity Jag-Off News.
— Maggie (@drillanwr) December 14, 2018
Jag-Off News. We are SO stealing … err … using that.
Astoundingly, there are over 29,468 garbage posts on Vox, almost enough for every refuge to rather just kill themselves than live in a country stupid enough to read this trash.
— Kyle Beckley (@Kyle_Beckley) December 14, 2018
But how many posts are there on Buzzfeed? THAT’S the real question here.
Put the bong DOWN.

Lol. Someone at Buzzfeed watched Caddyshack while stoned and took Al Czervick seriously.

Oh, settle down, we didn’t say it. The unicorn did.
Sure, we laughed at it and used it in this article but we didn’t say it.
On second thought we kinda sorta wish we had said it.
