Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In order to understand the news, a context of world geography and history is essential. That is why The Onion is publishing a world atlas: to help us. News that now makes no sense will now make sense. Thus begins a new age of enlightenment.

OUR DUMB WORLD contains, among other things:



  • News and historic facts from other nations
  • Historic timelines for countries
  • Rejected flag designs
  • The earth broken down and described, from its molten core to the outermost sphere, and the location of heaven
  • Demographic, economic and other -ic data about each country's people, industries, and habits
Every country will be categorized in a number of ways, including:



  • Ethnic cleanliness
  • Level of Bono activity
  • Prop comedians per 1,000 live birds
  • Yearly income in wide-screen televisions
  • The Monkeys they got
  • Where it sees itself in five years
  • Color boxes for average skin color
  • Chart listing benefits of invading said country
  • Most annoying handicrafts
OUR DUMB WORLD is the first original Onion audiobook in eight years--a gut-busting send-up in which no nation escapes unscathed.

Synopsis:

The definitive fake world atlas is a repository of information about every country in the world, as well as the world itself, as well as directions to tonights party at Ericas. Abridged. 3 CDs.
