Estonia Changes Tourism Slogan to "A Country of Interest"

In order to capitalize on the US government's new classification system, Estonia has changed its tourism marketing slogan from "Positively Surprising" to "A Country of Interest." Now, says tourism spokesman Tiit Tüütu, "anytime someone googles terrorism-related topics he'll wind up on Estonia's homepage." Tüütu added that the new slogan allows Estonia to recover "that certain ring" it lost when it abandoned the slogan "Welcome to Estonia."
The new US security designation follows as a result of alleged terrorist Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab who boarded an flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas day. Other Countries of Interest include Afghanistan, Algeria, Iraq, Lebanon, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Yemen.
