    United Shapes

    I thought this was a pretty interesting map from XKCD:



    I'm kind of dissapointed MN, IA, MO, AK, and LA aren't the chef with his hat though.

    Colorado is it's own Wiki page, LOL! The Georgia and Missouri shapes are funny too.

    We are a burger, and Nebraska is a van load of people trying to get the hell out of there. That's about as far as I got.

    I didn't realize Alaska was bordered by Missouri and Louisiana. This will really save me time on my vacations.
