Maps, you have to love them! As a kid in the pre-internet age, I spent many an hour poring over my precious atlas, memorizing countries, their capital cities, rivers, mountain ranges, flags...Dreaming of visiting them all, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.

But not all types of maps are useful. Some, even the most detailed world maps with countries show.. nothing helpful in particular. However, as the page 'Terrible Maps' proves, you can still have fun with them! This tongue-in-cheek collection of cartography-based funny memes and jokes is sometimes absurd and other times surprisingly informative, but funny jokes with geography and world maps are always a good laugh! Scroll down below to check out the funny drawings and useless information for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!
