I don't think it's famous outside America. I've only vaguely heard of the Andy Griffith show.

The Andy Griffith Show isn't shown all around the world, and there are plenty of non-US people on this site. Loads of people just won't get the reference.

Yeah, well I don't live on Mordor either, but I got that one. By the way, ain't no way Mayberry was a "city".

This American has never heard of "Neighbours" either, but I'm not whining about it. Instead I looked it up and learned something new.

@fitheach simply replied to the original comment (which questioned why Mayberry wasn't guessed by a lot of people) by explaining why many people wouldn't get it. Not sure why you guys both responded so negatively. Just because someone acknowledges a non-American perspective doesn't mean they are complaining.

@rgc1600 by that logic you must know he street I live in and the city my parents were born. If it is not something wellknown people wont know about it. You come across lord of the rings reference all the time, besides the bible, star wars and harry potter, I actually cant think of anything you come across more often. The above show is not only not aired here, unlike lotr which has been available all over the world. But it simply is not a part of pop culture, so no way to know about it. Just like you won't be able to know the street I live on.

Do I attack you for not knowing the place I live in? No Because there is no way you could know unless you live there too or know me personally..

So how come Bollywood hasn't changed to Mollywood?

level 77
Jun 5, 2018
Bollywood was coined from Bombay and can't change because Mollywood is the nickname for Malayalam cinema. I did a whole quiz on nicknames for the film industry around the world. https://www.jetpunk.com/user-quizzes/97423/movie-industry-nicknames-inspired-by-hollywood

Oct 22, 2019
Being ok with missing something is something different than taking pride in ignorance (which I think is dumb too (wouldnt call it scummy though, it has no effect on others)).

I think whining that you didnt get first place in something is worse. It is ok not to win at everything. I rather deal with someone that is fine with losing once in a while, than someone that trashes stuff and flips the table just because they didnt get their way.

The big-head brass band is gone now. The walls are plastered with flat screen TV's that are glued to ESPN and Fox Sports. And there are Tongan bouncers that won't let you in because there's something wrong with your shoes. You've already had 10 beers. How the hell are you going to know what's wrong with your shoes?
