1. Pretty accurate

But I am sure the Teabaggers all support Israel as they support attacking Iran, Iraq and any other middle east nation.

3. I agree.

I think in the middle of the evil-doers there should be and island of land that is labeled: "People in the bible live here."

12. While that's true,

what do you reckon the odds are of any of them being able to name what continent it's on, much less find it on a map?

They probably think it's that blob of "MORE AMERICA!!!" that represents Hawaii. Or the Santa one. Could go either way.

20. it's worth going to the large version to see the fineness of detail

I like the way the map legend breaks down categories like, British Territory, used to be British Territory, ought to be British Territory

22. Remember the Canadian World Domination website? They had designs on the USA, wasn't pretty! LOL!

USA Redesignated for Canadian Rule:

Legend For Easy Interpretation of our Redesigned USA

Under Canadian World Domination we find states to be illogical and prefer provinces. The following zones have been renamed to suit Canuck aims.

ZONE I: Laporte Memorial Park (territory) "LMP"

ZONE II: Land Du Beaver (territory) "LDB"

ZONE III: Molson (province)

ZONE IV: Acadia (province)

ZONE V: Kraftland (province)

ZONE VI: Degrassi Jr. Wasteland (province) "DJW"

ZONE VII: Dief The Chief (province) "DTC"

HORTON BAY: This is our man-made reservoir -- we have flooded several former American states to make this majestic watery area. There was no purpose, just cruelty.

ZONE VIII: Littlest-Hobo-Land (province)

ZONE IX: Bombardier (province)

ZONE X: The Hip (province)

ZONE XI: The Trudeau Compound -- this is our man-made penal colony. Some have suggested that the United States of America be flooded with nuclear radiation and used for soil experimentation instead of wasting time with colonization attempts. The pro-nuke regiment of Canadian World Domination has made a good case, read their reasoned arguments.

ZONE XII: Johnny LaRue Provincial Park -- Recently added in honour of Canada's Nunavut, this zone is mostly lake area. Refugees from the flooding of Horton Bay will be invited to build houseboats from driftwood and learn to enjoy living in this scenic area.



Unable to get the pictures to show up, they were a hoot. They have plans, I'm telling ya, they're up to something up there!

11. I had a Teabagger tell me I was a Native American

14. That's why the gop wants to defund education and go with home schooling or charter schools

Religious charter schools which claim that the Loch Ness monster exists, no to critical thinking,
