From the Publisher:
OUR DUMB WORLD is the world's most comprehensive fake atlas: a repository of all known information about the planet Earth (except where covered by clouds).||In late 2007 the hardcover edition became one of the hottest books of the holiday season, entertaining and offending hundreds of thousands of readers around the globe. This new, easy-to-carry paperback edition is perfect for the intrepid traveler to any of the world's exotic locales--from Afghanistan, "Allah's Cat Box," to Ukraine, "the Bridebasket of Europe," to the USA's own Nevada, "Where Everyone's a Loser."||Packed with beautiful full-color maps and framed with inaccurate essays about all the world's peoples and places, OUR DUMB WORLD is a gut-busting send-up in which no nation escapes unscathed.||
"Bottom line: laughed my head off." --Deirdre Donahue, USA Today
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"!)
