There’s a new Inside Amy Schumer tonight after Tosh.

In the meantime, click here to watch sketches from last week’s episode. They’re so good.

Have I been missing out on a cultural phenomenon? Start from episode 1?

The answers for “rich”, south to north - diamonds, oil, oil. Would like to know the answers for “poor.”
ilovecharts:

I applied the “Why is [name of country] so…?” idea to Africa this time.
Notes:
The “cheap” floating west of Senegal and Mauritania refers to Cape Verde; the “safe” in the Gulf of Guinea refers to São Tomé and Príncipe; the “expensive” floating on Indian Ocean refer to Seychelles and Mauritius; the “poor” also floating on the Indian Ocean refers to Comoros.
There were no results for Southern Sudan (too recent a country?).

If I may, I will use this opportunity to clarify the colour selection in my previous map (of Europe), namely why “corrupt” and “atheist” were the same colour. Contrary to some comments I read, there was no agenda dictating the colours I used; if for no other reason, because I’m an atheist myself…
It was just bad luck. (I’m the kind of atheist that doesn’t believe in karma either, heheheh…)
In my original file “atheist” and “corrupt” had somewhat different colours (dark violet and brown, respectively), but I made the mistake of saving it as a 32-colour GIF, which made them look the same. (The same happened with “powerful” and “hot”). As simple as that. No conspiracy involved.

"Women can’t ride bicycles in Afghanistan, but skateboarding is novel enough to be open to women and has attracted them in droves to the Kabul school where classes are free, and at the back of the skating section are neat changing areas and classrooms where children can study everything from basic literacy to advanced computing when they put down their boards and take off their helmets" Read more about Skateistan in this article from Daily Mail.
