State of the Union (The Economist)

20110209_state_of_the_union

Last week The Economist had a cute illustration of alternative nicknames for individual American states (see above). In response, Veggo Larsen from Palmetto, Florida offered his alternatives for European countries:

  • Sprain
  • Bad Reportugal
  • Inkland
  • Direland
  • Not-so-Niceland
  • Greece Trap
  • Francid
  • Itally
  • Wild Turkey
  • Check Republic [or, Cheque Republic]
  • Repoland
  • Slowvakia

I love his sign off, “You started this.”
