Entry from July 24, 2016
“If earth is the third planet from the sun, then isn’t every country a third world country?”

The term “third world” was popularized in the 1950s during the Cold War and referred to political alignments, but there’s a joke:

“If earth is the third planet from the sun, then isn’t every country a third world country?”

The joke was cited on Twitter on December 1, 2011.


Wikipedia: Third World
The term Third World arose during the Cold War to define countries that remained non-aligned with either NATO, or the Communist Bloc. The United States, Western European nations and their allies represented the First World, while the Soviet Union, China, Cuba, and their allies represented the Second World. This terminology provided a way of broadly categorizing the nations of the Earth into three groups based on social, political, cultural and economic divisions.
