The world according to Americas

Europe according to Germans

Uhhgg. Really? dev, i agree with you on the canada/veggie thing (sounds like someone got Canada and Cregon confused). Being an American I disagree whole heartedly on most everything on that "map". I 'otta sue somebody! (me chuckling to myself...)

@JTPatrick: Maybe to someone who doesn't know americans... vegetarians (seriously, who associates canada with vegetarians, that's reserved for the NW US)? hockey moms (that would be canada, not alaska)? mesoindia (just, wtf)? It doesn't even get the ones close to the states right, which are the only ones your stereotypical stupid American would even acknowledge as existing.

And Indian curry is a staple of the late British empire, not the US. At least on the west coast, more people associate curry with Thai food, but are likely to confuse Thailand and Taiwan. India would be where all your support calls go.

It seems like some of the previous ones were better, or at least more humorous. Some of these seem to be random and way out there, even confusing in some cases.
