I'd put money on more Americans getting this question wrong, but probably not by much.

Americans would get this wrong too, because they think everything revolves around them.

Latest comment: Many Americans, being so fat, actually have their own gravitational pull and thus objects literally do orbit around them: KFC buckets, empty fast food cups etc. True fact.

Brett, Australians aren't Americans. Since you've confused the two, Jeff Foxworthy should say "here's your sign." Meanwhile, looks like everyone's equally stupid. I saw some figures and between europe and the USA, everyone screws up this questions (and similar ones)
