Can these Austin stoners answer Jimmy Kimmel’s basic questions?

Surprise, surprise: Austin stoners are more familiar with South Park characters than with their own mayor.

Jimmy Kimmel is trolling potheads again, this time at South by Southwest.

Kimmel took his Pot Quiz on the road, getting one of his correspondents to ask local Austin stoners a series of not-so-difficult questions. Can they identify the mayor of Austin, describe the three branches of government, or name even one senator? No, but they sure can recommend a good local donut place to eat at when you’re high.

To be honest, we think this one may be a little unfair to the stoners. It’s easy to imagine totally sober people answering these questions in the same way. High or not, a lot of people are way more familiar with Keeping Up with the Kardashians than they are with the Supreme Court.
