From the Publisher:
In order to understand the news, a context of world geography and history is essential. That is why The Onion is publishing a world atlas: to help us. News that now makes no sense will now make sense. Thus begins a new age of enlightenment.||OUR DUMB WORLD contains, among other things:||

  • News and historic facts from other nations
  • Historic timelines for countries
  • Rejected flag designs
  • The earth broken down and described, from its molten core to the outermost sphere, and the location of heaven
  • Demographic, economic and other -ic data about each country's people, industries, and habits
Every country will be categorized in a number of ways, including:||

  • Ethnic cleanliness
  • Level of Bono activity
  • Prop comedians per 1,000 live birds
  • Yearly income in wide-screen televisions
  • The Monkeys they got
  • Where it sees itself in five years
  • Color boxes for average skin color
  • Chart listing benefits of invading said country
  • Most annoying handicrafts
OUR DUMB WORLD is the first original Onion audiobook in eight years--a gut-busting send-up in which no nation escapes unscathed.
In this mock reference book, the clever folks who publish the satirical newspaper the Onion take on the very funny (who knew?) topic of world geography. Spanning the globe, and using maps, charts, and a lot of questionable statistics, they provide a wealth of misinformation on countries ("The United Kingdom: surging ahead to the 19th century") , regions, and places no one has ever heard of (such as the Great Human Pyramid of Egypt). Though not recommended for school research projects, this rip-roaring cartographic tour makes a wonderful graduation gift. (And the cover promises a "free globe inside"!)
