So I am 1/4 Turkish, not offended, but I think Djibouti (jabooty) should be on top. Also on an unrelated note fezzes and ataturk are badass

Me and my friends say Turkey and Hungary are best friends.

Don't make fun of my country; I'm half Turkish, so be careful. I get mad easily.

I always think of Thanksgiving whenever I hear this country's name.

2 Djibouti

I don't know anything about this country's history or culture and I am sure it is absolutely amazing but the name is pretty funny.

If there's an earthquake in eastern Africa, It'll certainly...

Shake Djibouti.

"Why do you like that African girl? "

"She has a nice Djibouti"

Haha, I wonder who named it that," I did bro! '

7 Finland Finland, officially the Republic of Finland, is a sovereign state in Europe. It has a capital of Helsinki and got independence from the Soviet Union after WWI.

"Finland! " - Patrick Star
What makes the name Finland so funny is not really the name itself, but rather how it has been cemented into popular culture and Internet culture, all thanks to this pink starfish.

If SpongeBob didn't exist, this would still be funny because it's like a land of fins. But Patrick made this country's name 50 times better.

Is Patrick okay?

12 Montenegro

Montenegro is a Spanish name yet they're a country which speaks Montenegrin and Serbian so why is the name Spanish. I feel like they could have used something similar to Crna Gora which is Montenegro in Montenegrin.
