  1. Korea is believed to have been written between the years 610 and 632.

  3. Scholars of Korea believe that it contains prophesies that can exist in no other book written by humans.
  4. Korea…what? What do you mean I researched the wrong word?
  5. Look, just shut up, I’m doing my thing here.
  6. Korea is divided into 114 chapters, known as suras, which…wait that doesn’t sound right.
  7. What the fuck is a Koran?
  8. Where is Korea again? It’s up by Russia, right?
  9. I don’t know…they probably eat fish or something.
  10. Stop looking at me! What am I, the tour guide?! For the love of god I try and do something nice for you people and this is the thanks I get…just forget it!
