Please Tell Me This Is Supposed To Be Satire!*

continents1

I just saw someone post this image on Facebook. I stopped what I was doing to grab this screenshot. WTH, people? Really?

It’s been 35 years since I graduated high school, but I’m pretty sure things haven’t changed that much, but to be sure, I also showed my daughter, who graduated in 2014, and she confirmed that nothing had changed.

NO! America is NOT that entire land mass. To once again quote my daughter, “I can’t even!”

I learned about the continents according to the graphic below:

Continent2

Notice the two separate continents, North America and South America. The United States of America is located in North America, just like it was when I was in school.

Is this what we are now teaching our kids? That America is the sum of two separate continents?

If so? I’m going to need a lot of prayer, because these kids are going to be caring for me when I get old. Jeebus.

    I’d say America, in many cases, is shorthand for the USA. After all, America the beautiful wouldn’t quite sound the same as United States the beautiful 😉
