‘Our Dumb World’ redefines the guilty pleasure.

If you’ve been wondering what can possibly take the place of that weeks-old Onion in your bathroom, look no further than this 240-page, full-color atlas of humorously incorrect statistics. It’s an especially clever lampoon of American ignorance in that it does not require any knowledge of the places covered (Bahrain, Burkina Faso, our own Bullshit States of Alaska, Hawaii, and Minnesota) in order to find the profiles funny. It’s almost enough to make us to believe in the idea of the guilty pleasure.
