The best part: there are no tigers in Africa.

Anyone got others?
Mapping War Deaths

Notice how they mention the British Isles separately from Western Europe in the caption of the first map. As if they make such a big difference…
My favorite map, which I keep on my wall:
Chris, when I was a kid in the early 70s, during the Black Power era, the map of Africa with the US inside it was a popular tshirt worn by many African Americans at the time. I lived in Washington DC during that time and it was common.
Does the creator of the first map not understand the difference between country and continent?
That’s not where Sudan is located, either.
I would’ve thought that the second map would be divided as follows:
North Africa – terroristsWest Africa – malariaEast+South Africa – AIDS
Pyramids? Egypt is in Africa?? I thought it was in the Middle East…
What, no tigers in Africa??!! But even Obama has a tiger-beating stick from Kenya in his office!
“there are no tigers in Africa”
No “wild” tigers, to be sure…..
This has been your Saturday afternoon pedantry moment and now, back to our regular programming….
