And Blood Feuds. They're Big On Those, Too

You border on the Adriatic
Your land is mostly mountainous
And your chief export is chrome!

That's about the limit for most Americans' knowledge about Albania. Here are some other facts and myths about Albania.

Fact: Albania is actually called Shqipƫria, which is pronounced just the way you'd think.
Myth: Captain Lou Albano is from Albania.
Fact: From the late 1920's through the 1930's, Albania was led by the Cartoon Network's King Zog I.
Myth: Albanian's own/run all the pizza joints in New York City.
Fact: In Albania, pizza is called qzshrw, which is pronounced pete-sa.

Daily life in Albania consists of doing things like making the world's largest toothpick mosaic or setting your truck on fire because the Albanian soccer team lost to arch nemesis, the Dutch.
