Packed with beautiful full-color maps and framed with inaccurate essays about the world written by the full "Onion" staff, "Our Dumb World: The Onions Atlas of the Planet Earth, 73rd Edition" is the first original "Onion" book in eight years--a gut-busting send-up in which no nation escapes unscathed.Little, Brown and Company
From the Publisher:
A news-parody compendium of world non-facts features incorrect statistics for all of the earth's independent nations, from Afghanistan's "Allah's Cat Box" and the world's rejected flag designs to the planet's most annoying handicrafts and the Ukraine's "Bridebasket of Europe." 300,000 first printing.
Annotation:
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"!)
