Non-Americans Label the US States

For Thanksgiving, Buzzfeed traditionally asks the staff at its UK office to try labeling a map of the United States with the state names, with often funny results. But apparently they are is getting too good at it, so this year, they solicited non-American readers to try it. The best (or funniest) have been posted today. Now, keep in mind that these were submitted by people who thought they knew something about the US, and they do, but the sheer number of states can become overwhelming for anyone who doesn't live here. SulliDowry, from China, did the map above, and although he knew there was a state that produced potatoes, he doesn't really know which one. Strnknd from Switzerland did this one.


Several labeled Kentucky as KFC, which is better than previous maps that did not label it at all. And everyone knows Florida -either from Disney World or the news. Check out the rest of the maps here.
