I swear by Eris and all I hold moldy that I did not Photoshop this:


  1. Yeah, so? That's how I see America, too.

  2. I didn't realize Seattle was "Hello Kittyland". Also, I had Chicago in the wrong place this whole time. Here I was thinking it was right on lake Michigan, and actually EAST of Minnesota.

    But, you know, public school education and all that.

  3. You have now had yet another insight into how Europeans feel whenever we're used as a plot device, Scene and/or mentioned by a US tourist.

    [beam meets eye]Apparantly Europeans are the only ones with an accurate view of what the worlds looks like. [/beam meet eye] =P

  4. Bunny:

    Huh? I'm not offended at all. In fact, I think this is is hilarious.

    I'm tempted to use this as a basis for a role-playing campaign setting, if I could just figure out how...

  5. I'd use it as the map for Diana, Princess Warrior, the RPG that treats the present as we treat history.

  6. Erin: So do I. So do I. It's hilarious when people associate sweden with windmill and clogs, or with watches, "ja ja" and chocolate.

  7. Actually, I was going to make the same point as Bunny. There's a hilarious version of this known as "How the US sees the UK" that I ran across once. Or I might have done it myself. I can't recall.

    Must find that again.
