World according to U.S.

There are only a couple things I would change about this map...

France should be labelled "Cheese weasels", NZ should be labelled "Middle-Earth" (not "Xena"--that's so five years ago), and "Llamas" should be written across the general vicinity of Peru. Otherwise, it looks about accurate. ;)

(Oh yes, and their "Hollywood" arrow is a few hundred miles off. It appears to be pointing to San Francisco. But then, I'm guessing this was drawn up by someone who is not from the U.S., so some inaccuracy about U.S. geography is to be expected. Hee. The irony.)

This perhaps reveals my own prejudices, but my guess is that any American who would draw the map this way would re-mark New York to include it under "Evil Communists."

And isn't there a rather big "Bombed here" dot missing... oh, say, somewhere around Japan or so?

(Still sniggering over "cheese weasels"...)

Uh-huh, Japan ought to have quite a few...so should Germany, for that matter.

And, really, they're assuming that most of us can locate Pakistan and Turkey and such on a map, which is kind of a stretch. ;)

aren't those both in the Levant, or Arabee?
