We've Got More Maps

Maps For Us is lighting up the Internet with hilarious contributions to the education of our country's map-deprived children. The site was started in response to Miss South Carolina's jumbled call for "education... such as... for the children" at last week's Miss Teen USA pageant. The video for that insightful analysis can be found in an earlier post, We Need More Maps.

Anyone can submit a map for the editors' consideration, it seems. The current postings range from the esoteric (Neo-Copernican Map of Chronological Cosmology) to the practical (Map of Coffeeshops in Amsterdam), from the highs (Map of the U.S.S. Voyager Flight Path) to the lows (Map to Booty Call -- Birmingham, MI). Here are some of my favorites from the ever-growing bunch.
