How many of the 50 US states can you name?


Four score and 161 years ago, the United States declared independence from Great Britain.

At the time, the union was comprised of just the 13 original colonies, but now it has an entire 50 states – hasn’t it done well for itself? *Gestures towards President actively baiting nuclear-ready North Korea via Twitter* ah, right.

Any Animaniacs fan worth their salt (more on that later) ought to know not only the states but their capital cities too – but can you do it when the pressure is really on?

You’ve got five minutes, and when you’re done here’s Wakko to fill in all the gaps. No cheating.
