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!

Marija Natkova Em Todorova

Once upon a time, war broke out among Norwegian Vikings. One band launched the boats and fled. They discovered a green island and settled. Afraid that their enemies might pursue them, they sent word back to Norway that their island was actually an ice-land, but that another island — more distant, larger and indeed covered by ice — was inhabitable green-land. And so the green island became Iceland, and the icy island became Greenland.
