    Americans Tried To Label Australia And It Did Not Go Well

    The US responds to Australians messing up their map.

    We were off to a bad start when this person didn't even realise Australia had states.

    BuzzFeed

    This person knew the country they were labeling, at least.

    BuzzFeed

    But when it came to the actual places within Australia, most people were way off.

    BuzzFeed

    Seriously not even close.

    BuzzFeed

    Except, weirdly, when it came to Tasmania.

    BuzzFeed

    Most people recognised Tasmania - even if they didn't necessarily know how to spell it.

    BuzzFeed

    Well, except this person who thought it might be New Zealand.

    BuzzFeed

    A few people pointed out that Tasmania actually looks like a face.

    BuzzFeed

    Which you basically cannot unsee.

    BuzzFeed

    But most Australians are probably too busy thinking it looks like female genitalia to notice the face, tbh.

    BuzzFeed

    Fun fact: "Map of Tassie" is Australian slang for pubic hair on a woman.

    Meanwhile, poor South Australia and The Northern Territory were forgotten a lot.

    BuzzFeed

    But the ACT got the worst deal - most people didn't even notice it enough to bother labeling it at all, except this person who thought it was Sydney.

    BuzzFeed

    And this person who was actually spot on - at least as far as Canberra (which is in the ACT) was concerned.

    BuzzFeed

    Some people knew more about Australian pop culture than geography.

    BuzzFeed

    Even if that knowledge itself was somewhat limited...

    BuzzFeed

    Although this person knew a lot - even if the locations were a little off...

    BuzzFeed

    This person focused on Finding Nemo, which is totally fine.

    BuzzFeed

    Of course Australian animals were a popular theme.

    BuzzFeed

    It is, after all, "Kangaroo Land."

    BuzzFeed

    Or even "Kangarooville".

    BuzzFeed

    Real talk: there are spiders everywhere.

    BuzzFeed

    And Australia DOES look like a CatDog.

    BuzzFeed

    This person got one thing right. Well, two if you count the dingoes.

    BuzzFeed

    This one was kind of back to front.

    BuzzFeed

    And this one was confused about which way was up.

    BuzzFeed

    This one was just a little off...

    BuzzFeed

    While this one was just frankly insulting.

    BuzzFeed

    Finally we got this person, who came so, so close. But still so far.
