    Wait, people in San Fransisco use the correct name and flag for the UK?! They dont call the UK England?

    Doubt it…

  2. Angel H. Wong says:

    That map is wrong. It should ONLY point out where the skinny people and the fat people are.

    And a photographic, definitely NSW, view of San Francisco According To The World.

    http://zombietime.com/

    This site is not just the fruits in San Francisco, but the nuts in Los Angeles and the moonbeams in San Diego.

    Is it any wonder why folks are fleeing the state for sanity somewhere else.

  4. jccalhoun says:

    The map isn’t really accurate. For one, San Francisco should be at the center since people from San Francisco think they are the center of the world. Then there wouldn’t be anything else because there isn’t anything else but San Francisco.

  5. Floyd says:

    The point of this is that San Francisco and New York City (from a previous, similar cartoon/map) are just as insular as the rest of the country.

    My sister in law lives between San Francisco and Sacramento, and she prefers Sacramento by a long shot.

  6. Steve says:

    #4 Here in San Francisco we’re always aware and take pride in the fact that we’re on the edge in more ways than one. I’m happy being in the bubble and twenty minutes outside the city, reality (too many white people) makes me uncomfortable. This city has plenty of faults(ha ha) but they’re outweighed by steady stream of oddballs from all over. A typical checkout line at Costco has people of more colors and countries that you wouldn’t see in a lifetime lived in Iowa. I loved the poster especially “Euronapa”.

  7. jbenson2 says:

    Enjoy the multiculturalism experiment as the state sinks into a state of bankruptcy.

    Feb 2010: “California is deeply in debt. You could say that it’s bankrupt,” Democratic gubernatorial candidate – Jerry Brown told a group of young Democrats.

    Republican Assemblywoman and retired banker Diane Harkey of Orange County said the state is “literally bankrupt.”

    One more comment: Las Vegas NV is definitely not in Jesus Land, except for the Mormon settlers that settled that area a long time ago, then established many of the casinos. Mormon casino owners in Nevada say they don’t gamble, because the odds are stacked in their favor.

    Arizona and New Mexico are just barely in Jesus Land, mostly because of the Catholics that settled there a very long time ago, then gave up the religion for Lent.

    At least they got Guinness right.

  10. GrendelKhan says:

    With the exception of a few minor details in America, is this too different to how most Americans see the world?

    Also – SF opinion of certain states is recorded incorrectly. For instance Michigan would be inferior American built gas guzzling cars. Louisiana would be shrimp and Katrina victims. Florida and Arizona would be good places for retirees, though Arizona’s recent laws might mean “new home for nazi’s”. Nevada would be hookers and a good place for a weekend vacation (though that might be more LA than SF).

    A good start though.

  11. Holdfast says:

    You see how it has Iraq marked as “War”.

    A lot of the world sees the whole of the USA marked as “Nutcases with guns”. What’s the difference?

  12. Nobodyspecial says:

    @chuck
    Except for the missing flag in the top bit.
    Luckily the Irish have always taken a laid back relaxed attitude to religion and sovereignty.

  13. RTaylor says:

    #12, we have apparently visited two different countries called Ireland. I wouldn’t advise flying the Union Jack, nor insulting the Church.

  14. sargasso_c says:

    Those wacky, San Franciscolanders.

  15. Yankinwaoz says:

    Australia is Fosters Beer? That is terrible. I guess Foster’s US marketing team should be congratulated for convincing Yanks that a crap beer that no self respecting Aussie would drink in public is what they all drink down under.

  16. Floyd says:

    #15: I’m not disagreeing with you–Fosters isn’t what I’d consider beer. One of my adult kids gave me one of the big cans for my birthday about 10 years ago. I took a sip, carefully hid the can (as a “Yes I drank it” trophy), carefully poured out the beer, and didn’t touch the rest.

    So–is there a good beer/ale made in Australia that can actually be purchased in the States and tastes good?

  17. bobbo, if I was a snarkey sort I could have says:

    that California ends at the Truckee River with border lines going North to a few miles above Bodega Bay and South to and including Las Vegas down to Imperial Valley. New York is most of the East Coast with the Bible Belt in the Middle with Mardi Gras taking up much of the South. Is good and beer what most SF’ers think about?

    Maybe so.

  18. bobbo, if I was a snarkey sort I could have says:

    hmmm – “food” and beer. I think maybe more about wine?

    And Canada is not the Hat of America. All that is needed is “Eh?”

  19. fulanoche says:

    And Philly. Especially now.

  20. KMFIX says:

    I see nothing wrong with this map.

  21. fulanoche says:

    It’s now 3-1.

  22. Believe It When I See It says:

    sigh

    This is the crap a one smart blog has come to…just silly, but not “Onion” silly, just stupid.

  23. Jocke says:

    Hehe!
    A really funny map of the world. It’s fun to see that all the other countries atleast lies OUTSIDE the U.S.
    My image of the americans (from USA) thinks everything lies within the U.S., just far away in some obscure corner.

    And,
    Shouldn’t ABBA and The Pirate Bay be mentioned on Sweden too?
    Maybe the creator isn’t old enough to know ABBA and not “techy” enough to have heard of TPB.

  24. Lord says:

    99% of the people who read this blog are stupid.

  25. Urotsukidoji says:

    #24 I agree. I know because I’m stupid.

  26. Faxon says:

    This state is so messed up. If Prop 19 passes, everybody here will bere able to grow a plot of pot five by five feet square. I have a beautiful modern greenhouse in my backyard, and at times it gets to be over 100 degrees inside. I am sure I can grow huge pot plants. In addition, it is very hard to see from anywhere. High fences, and buildings around hide it. So, when 19 passes, I will get some seeds from my pothead nephew and grow pot, just to sell the stuff for profit.
    It will be fun to take business away from Mexico.

    Please e-mail me when it’s fixed.

    Thanks,

  28. cfk says:

    Yawn… Is it just me or does California-bashing accelerate just as most of the rest of the U.S. is descending into winter and/or hurricane season?

  29. Great post however I was wondering if you could write
    a litte more on this topic? I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a
    little bit more. Thanks!
