I saw this thing a couple of weeks ago on someone else's blog (can't remember the link now) but it was captioned as being a drawing by George W. Bush.

Aside from the other humorous captions, what makes fighting communism a bad thing (minus bombing innocent people)?

Communism isn't a bad thing in theory, its just the implementation that doesn't work.

What's so funny about that?

Funny, yes. Gotta admit I laughed myself silly the first time I saw the thing. Very black humor, though, from this side. The reason? It's wayyy true.

Balderdash. Japan doesn't even show up on this map, and every American knows that's where electronics and cars come from.

It's not so much that America fights communism. That's not the problem. It's the fact that when we think of that half of the world (well, almost half), all we think of is "commies". We have no understanding or appreciation that there are actual people, with an actual culture, underneath all that red paint.

of course, that's become a lot less clear in the past 10 years.

I smell a Canadian or British author (note spelling of "civilisation.")

"I smell a Canadian"

Not likely since we really dislike your use of "america" as of referring to u.s.a...
To be on the safe side and just to let you know (I read somewhere most americans can't point u.s.a on a map): there's actually 3 of them fill with countries where hamburgers eat ppl.

I read somewhere that gay is contagious.

Also, don't kiss a girl or she'll get pregnant. Unless you're a girl too, in which case both of you will go bald.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go catch my refridgerator.
