The Onion's "Our Dumb World" Online

The Onion's "Our Dumb World" has been making the rounds on the various geography and cartography blogs. The "atlas" contains stories and "information" about countries around the world. The entries can best be described as horribly, awfully funny.

Now people can enjoy blurbs online using a Google Maps mashup. A fair number of countries are already up with more added each week. The previous and current "featured" countries of the week has multiple entries. One can even download a KML file for viewing in Google Earth.

Be sure and check it out today! If not you will never know the exact time the sun will set on the British Empire, East Timor was a country that got some sense bombed into it, and just what sort of nightmares do occur in the Democratic Republic of The Congo.
