Forgive my ignorance, but I missed your (apparently) subtle point about this picture. Care to elaborate?
 
Apparently, the US has sold south Texas back to Mexico, sold northern Michigan to Canada, and California has broken off and drifted off into the Pacific. Wisconsin has also mutated to become further north than Washington. Am I missing anything?

Insulting an economist's sense of humor is like insulting a comedian's understanding of economics.
