Part 2: The Onion has extended their humor into cartography to create their “Our Dumb World: Atlas of Planet Earth”, 73rd Edition (yeah right). Also available as a Google Maps mashup edition. From their promo: “The Onion provides you, the elite consumer who actually reads books, a bound, beautifully illustrated hardcover archive of all the world’s accumulated knowledge. Carry it with you when you travel in order to make sense of the strange cultures and frightening cuisine of other nations. 256 pages.”
