I asked my six-year-old to draw an outline of the United States, which he did with much eagerness and...hilarity. I had no idea that maps were so funny. I also had no idea that the U.S. looks like a monster--with Maine and Florida as the legs, and Michigan as the butt cheeks. Guess that sounds about right though.
The nine-year-old's task was to label the states, as many as he could from memory. You know what I ended up with? A map labeled as so:
Texas = T-RexasCartographer Comedians. Who knew?
Iowa = I-Owe-A-Lot
Illinois = Sick-Annoy
Minnesota = Mint-Soda
Mississippi = Hit-Sippy
Florida = Ceiling-Duh
New York = New Egg
Maine = Lion
Arkansas = Sea World
