Parody Map: 'The World According to Americans'

| by Michael Allen

Journalist Ambrose Bierce once said that "War is God's way of teaching Americans geography."

Given that most America's educational system trails so many countries in the industrialized world, that joke has become a reality.

Yanko Tsvetkov, a Bulgarian artist also known as the 'alpahdesigner,' has created a parody map of 'The World According to Americans.'

This map shows the stereotypes that many Americans have of foreign countries. The map is part of a series created by Tsvetkov called 'Mapping Stereotypes.'

You can see more of his parody posters on his web site.
