This Map Of Northern Virginia Will Probably Offend Everyone

[Map by Robert Thompson for Judgmental Maps]

There have been a couple publications out there that have attempted to make a map of D.C. based on neighborhood stereotypes. They generally ranged from clever to ignorance masquerading as cleverness, but this Judgmental Map of Northern Virginia throws all pretense of niceties out the window. It's just flat out bent on offending people and if laughs happen along the way, all the better. The map actually does have its amusing moments like listing Tysons as "overpriced mall," Wolf Trap as "concerts" and Dulles as "airport with overpriced flights to everywhere." But then the map creator Robert Thompson's apparent obsession with blowjobs turns the creation into one never ending dick joke. When the map is not obsessing over fellatio, it's calling Dumfries "Rednecks With Some Teeth" (as opposed to "Rednecks With No Teeth"), referring to Springfield as "Gang Killings" and pigeonholing Vienna as "Indian Doctors." Basically, everyone that comes from these suburban areas will likely find something on this map to make them angry. That said, discuss amongst yourselves whether NoVa fared better than Chicago, Atlanta and New York.
