Fox News mistakes Michigan's U.P. for Canada, because apparently maps are hard

The latest flub comes from none other than the dunderheads over at Fox News, the same network that mixed up Mississippi and Michigan when reporting on Hurricane Sally in September. For the record, Michigan was not in Sally's path. Like, not even close.

This time Fox News erroneously labeled Michigan's Upper Peninsula as being part of Canada while reporting on some trifling post-election happenings in Wisconsin.

But wait! Our judges are meeting and they're now saying that Fox News does not get rewarded any points because in fact, they've already used this exact graphic mislabeling the Upper Peninsula as Canada. Our judges are saying that last year, a Fox News affiliate out of Wisconsin was airing a news story about the Foxconn deal in downstate Mount Pleasant with the same map, only altering the featured city related to the story.

We're very sorry Fox News unfortunately we won't be able to award you any points but you will go home with this exciting prize: a friggin' map of Michigan.

3. This is Quantum Geography

Michigan, Minnesota and Canada are all superimposed on each other, and it's only when you open the box that you find out whether the cat is alive, dead, or Trump's hairpiece.

9. Well, that explains a lot of voter fraud in Michigan.

A Sharpie could have corrected the hurricane's path.

10. #FoxFail (as usual)

Gee, it's too bad there's not a freely-available source of information nearby, like the internet where they could look things up.
