During Wednesday’s edition of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” a street reporter asked a host of Americans to identify a few relevant state abbreviations.

Focusing on the states which held primary events on Tuesday, pedestrians were asked to identify which states were represented by the abbreviations “HI,” “ID,” “MS,” and “MI.” Predictably, regular old Americans had no clue which abbreviations stood for what state.

It’s sad, but also pretty funny.
