Geographical Charades

Countries that look like things: Italy looks like a boot, Iceland looks like a duck, Ireland looks like teddy bear zombie, Australia looks like underwear hanging, Mexico looks like a relaxing shrimp, Vietnam looks like someone screaming being sucked into a vortex, Sweden and Finland look like a penis and balls

  1. Austria: guitar. And I have seen Sweden compared to other things (especially as it appears on euro coins).

    1. To me Austria kinda looks like a head without body and only one foot.

    2. This guy made one (link in German).
      But he made it the wrong way around...

    1. True, but I don't want to get a call from any Hanna-Barbara lawyers...

    1. Ha! It does look like a chicken. I'll save that one for part 2 of this comic...

  7. Wales is a pig's head, possibly being swallowed whole by a crocodile shaped England.

  8. Dude, you left out the North of Ireland, which would have completed the teddy bear!

    1. True - but it's a different country. I guess so are Sweden and Finland...

  9. Most of my Chinese friends explain their country as shaped like a rooster. I think this is taught in their schools, because several different sources have used the image to help me place their hometown location.

  15. If you turn Australia sideways it looks like a anthropomorphic-pig's head wearing a hard-hat.

  16. I'm really really really late on this one, but um . . . how did you miss Tasmania? Amanda Palmer would be so pissed.

    1. I must be missing a part one or something? Unless Tasmania is being covered by Australia.

    2. Isn't Tasmania the little drop off the underpants?

    3. Haha, oh crap you're right! But nah, I was talking about a slang term for a bit of female anatomy. The only people I've heard use it were Aussies, but I don't actually know if it's their thing or not, or even how popular it is. I just know it's far and away one of my favorite metaphors for something you might find "down under."

      The Amanda Palmer reference https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-GQ63NStxk
      She communicates it much more creatively than I could. And it's a lot like China and the rooster. It's almost impossible to stop seeing it.
