Americans Try To Place European Countries On A Map

:( :( :( :( At least the U.K. office didn't fare much better with the U.S.

OK, in our defense, Europe is really complicated.

BuzzFeed

Turns out, this effort — which places several countries in the ocean — is one of the best.

BuzzFeed

A common problem was filling in all the countries that one knows and then realizing there's still a half-dozen blank spots on the map.

BuzzFeed

This person's nearly crossed-off list likely aided them in having one of the most complete maps we received.

BuzzFeed

Most of us went to college.

BuzzFeed

And yet, here we are (apologies to all of the Mr. Harrisses in the world).

BuzzFeed

At least we (sort of) know where Borat is from.

BuzzFeed

Borat is a really big deal here, I guess?

BuzzFeed

Borat is the president of Europe, right?

BuzzFeed

And MOST of us know where Russia is (and that it's very cold).

BuzzFeed

I had never heard of the countries I, Am, Very, Sorry, You, Are, All, or Great before!

BuzzFeed

Sorry.

BuzzFeed

I find this impressive but have no idea if it's correct. Cypress!!!

BuzzFeed

Second Poland is a hot tourist destination, I hear.

BuzzFeed

But not as hot as Affordable Vacations.

BuzzFeed

This tiny hand Turkey is having a really good time, and I hear mini-Poland is almost as fun as Second Poland.

BuzzFeed

"What is that?"

BuzzFeed

One thing is clear: Europe is overrun with meandering arrows.

BuzzFeed

The motherland?! Starting to regret not asking for names...

BuzzFeed

Moomins are really cool, but I'm pretty sure they don't live next to the USSR.

BuzzFeed

Points for honesty, though.

BuzzFeed

Cold is a recurring theme, which may have had something to do with the weather in NYC today.

BuzzFeed

It's really cold, and so is this entire area of middle Europe.

BuzzFeed

People wear fur coats there!

BuzzFeed

Shame is also a very common component.

BuzzFeed

The great GOTH vs. METAL wars of the 1800s are long behind us...

BuzzFeed

...but apparently war still plagues much of Europe (thankfully saving Benedict Cumberbatch's house).

BuzzFeed

"Farms."

BuzzFeed

"Your mom Romania."

BuzzFeed

But seriously: When is someone going to do something about all of the fake countries in Europe?

BuzzFeed
