The Onion wraps the world

Here's a great holiday gift for anyone who likes to laugh: The Onion has moved on from "Our Dumb Century," its hilarious collection of fake front pages from throughout the years, and created "Our Dumb World," an equally hilarious atlas.

Germany's page is subtitled "Genocide-Free Since April 11, 1945." And for some reason, my home state of Minnesota is singled out along with Alaska and Hawaii to be listed under "Bullshit States." (I suspect it's a friendly rivalry since the Onion folks originally were from Wisconsin.)
