Geography Is Not Taught in N.Y., QED

A conversation with my 6-year-old brother who was playing with a mini Columbia basketball when I got home for Thanksgiving:
6-year-old bro: Hi, Eli7!
Eli7: Hi.
bro: Did you buy me this ball?
Eli7: Yup. Do you know where it's from?
bro: Israel.
Eli7: No. It's from Columbia.
bro: Oh, close.
(Full disclosure: Actually my parents bought him the ball and told him it was from me, but I wasn't going to tell him all that.)
