“What borders on stupidity?"/"Canada and Mexico.”

"Hahahah QOTD: ‘What borders on stupidity? Mexico and Canada.’ #USElection” was posted on Twitter by Niklas (and many others) on November 9, 2016. Many people felt that the U.S. presidential election between Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump (the winner) had made the country look bad.

“There is a joke circulating in Germany: ‘What borders on stupidity?’ ‘Mexico and Canada!’” was posted on Twitter by 𝕋𝕠𝕞 ℍ𝕚𝕔𝕜𝕤 on August 15, 2020, and this tweet went viral (over 130,000 likes). There is no question that the joke was originally told in German.

“Was grenzt an Dummheit? Mexiko und Kanada” was posted on Twitter by Hoschi on May 17, 2016. It is uncertain if this is the origin of the joke.
