Description

If you really want to know about the world and understand how the planet works, look no further than Our Dumb World, the atlas that reveals the real truth about each country. 'Located direcctly at the centre of the universe, around which everything else revolves, the nation of xxxxxx is the sole beacon of life and civilisation in an otherwise empty void' - who else could it be but France? Meanwhile, we get to understand why Iraq was invaded by the USA, not only were they guilty over 9/11, 'the worst attack on US soil since Iraqi pilots bombed Pearl Harbor' but Saddam Hussein also assassinated JFK. So if you want to know which is the sleepiest country in Europe, which nation has the hottest queen, or where the rubble from previous conflicts is now buried under the debris of today's wars, Our Dumb World will provide the answers. Every country's pretensions are skewered, their hopes squashed and their fears laughed at. In short, by the end of this book, you will never be able to visit any country in the world without seeing it in an entirely new and hilarious light.show more
