World According to Americans (Map)

About right:


Via Stephen Green, who titles it “Close Enough for Jazz.” It’s apparently been around a while, since the site referenced in the bottom corner has been “on hiatus” since August 2008.

UPDATE:  It’s worth noting that variations of this idea have been around forever.  There was one years ago called  “The World According to Ronald Reagan.”

There are dozens of these out there; I haven’t the foggiest who originated the meme.

    Michael,

    “Inspiration for” is the correct answer. The XKCD comic was written in response to those maps that have been floating around for about 8 years.

    And as always, XKCD does it the best.
