Jimmy Kimmel's most recent "Confusing Question of the Day" segment leaves you with two options: You can either cry, or you can laugh at how little the interviewees know about current events.

Kimmel's crew found people who offered serious responses to the following question: "Do you agree with President Obama's decision to seek congressional approval for military action against Miley Syria in response to twerking of civilians using VMAs?"


Well, we had a good run, everyone. Maybe it's time to give up.
