A Recent BuzzFeed story illustrates what happens when you give British folks a pen and a blanked-out outline of the United States with the instructions to label each state. Of the returned submissions, quite a few of them got Maine correctly (one even with a caricature of a lobster) but this person got us confused with New Hampshire and Massachusetts. (Somewhere you can hear a collective shriek echo all across Maine: Nooooooooooooo!)
But at least we didn’t get labeled “Nobody Cares.” That honor goes to Nebraska.
Fair to say though, Americans aren’t that awesome at labeling European countries, either.
