So everyone on the internoodle is so excited that Al Franken drew a map of the U.S. from memory. "Big deal," we thought, and challenged our writers and editors to do the same.

Julieanne: Close.



Julie:
Oklahoma is more than OK -- it's on the map twice.



Emily: Appears to have gotten distracted after penciling in her home state.



Timm: Wow -- real talk from our StreetLevel friend.



Jordan: "Eff Mississippi," he says in retrospect.



Laura: More like No-hio! Amirite, ladies?



CJ: Our saucy blogger gets political -- and in color!


Lindsey: Our contributor from Urlesque's anthropomorphic take on the media's view of America:



Erin: Pretty good, but she did get two do-overs.



Meg Malone: Our new awesome friend writes, "This was a lot harder than I thought! I could only remember 45 states." That's 43 more than some of us, Meghan.



Lydia Weary: A reader from Columbus, Ohio, sent in this fancy-pants version, explaining, "Here's a map I drew from memory for a sign that I took to a concert a few years back. The song 'Monday Comes Around' is a b-side from Switchfoot's album 'The Beautiful Letdown.'" Color us impressed!



Ryan:
Julieanne's friend contributed a digital guide to the nation's goods and services.



Nick:
A reader apologetically sent this in with the note, "Wanted to blame this on someone under 21... but truthfully, this is the product of US High School Education! (And 2 years of college too!!)" Showoff!


Reader Meg sent u s this hilarious map! We want to live where cheese lives.
