    Defending the now-infamous spraying of University of California Davis students by a police officer in a November, 2011 protest, Fox News host Megyn Kelly inaccurately described pepper spray as a "food product, essentially."

    And this is a really good one:

    Fox news is no stranger to map gaffes. Quite the contrary, botched geography is an annual occurrence (and at this point, even a tradition) for the location-challenged network.

    In 2009, Fox placed replaced Egypt with Syria. In 2010, they put Sydney on the wrong side of Australia. And then true to form, in 2011 Fox managed to mistake a nightclub for a nuclear power plant on their map of Japan.

    During the Japanese meltdown scare, the network displayed a chart mapping all of the nuclear power plants in the country. However, one was labelled "Shibuyaeggman," which was mysteriously absent from any other official records. Investigations turned up the truth--Shibuyaeggman is a popular night spot. It may get hot during the late hours, but it's probably safe to say that the club is safe from a nuclear explosion.
