Ridiculous Board Games! (Win yourself a t-shirt already)

We're going to use the whiteboard hanging in our office "“ OK, leaning against our cubicle wall "“ to give away some t-shirts. We were planning to simply ask you to guess a number between 1 and 100. But that neglects to highlight Mangesh's artistic prowess. So let's do this instead:

1. Mangesh will draw one nation's flag in dry erase marker.
2. You will take a wild guess as to which country's flag he's drawn. (You will not get to see the artist's rendering, making your guess all the more wild.)
3. The first person to correctly identify the country wins a t-shirt.
(4. We come up with a second whiteboard game.)

Before we start, a couple of rules:
a) 3 guesses per person, but they must be in separate comments.
b) Comments don't appear on the site until we moderate them. But we'll be able to tell who was the first successful guesser.

And here's what you're playing for: the t-shirt of your choosing, courtesy of the mental_floss store:

OK, he's drawing now. No hints. Let the guessing begin.

Update: We have a winner. Round two begins shortly.

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
