In 2081, everyone will be a MapCouch

During my recent browsing session of Al Gore's only patented invention (cough), I happened to view a very unique trailer for an exciting movie entitled, 2081. Inspired by Kurt Vonnegut's short story Harrison Bergeron, the film centers around the idea that in the year 2081, everyone is forced to be equal due to an aggressive and overpowering effort to make society completely "fair." It is important to note that I am interested in this particular film because I will be around in 2081. The people that use me and love me will surely keep me around that long, and in doing so, I hope to remain as unique as the day I was crafted. I, unlike people, do not have to worry that there will be a GPS couch or a more comfortable map chair. My world will continue to keep me unique, just as I will do my best to continue to prolong the distinct existence of the MapCouch for those I benefit. That is my solemn promise! So to you, fans of the MapCouch, check out this movie about hope, and keep the marvel that is human beings special! Check out the video below to view the trailer for this excitingly interesting film.

Couch Surfing...

No, no, nooo...this is not what you think it is. Nobody has gone on a shirtless rampage, with all their weight born onto my cushioned belly and thrust their hips about as if trying to exist on water....ok wait a minute, that HAS happened. At any rate, couch-surfing is a relatively old phenomenon that has found new fire since the boom of the internets. Basically, there is an online community you can join where you can "surf" from couch to couch as a sort of poor man's vacation tactic, rather than pay for a bed in the local tavern.

If you would be interested in Couch Surfing, you can check out, which hosts an internet community of would-be couch potatoes decidely cheaping out their vacation plans. You, of course, are free to do the same.

MapCouch Tip: Couch-surfing is not for the faint of heart. Side effects may include dizziness, upset stomach, runny nose, or nosebleeds. If you experience pain during urination, see a doctor or health care professional. If you save lots of money, continue experiencing side effects as needed.

Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Beijing...

Apparently I neglected to bring up the fact that Michael Phelps is a fan of the MapCouch. In fact, he has been said to sleep as much as he can while training and competing...Where did you think he sleeps? Isn't it obvious? Psssh....

MapCouch Tip:
Become a Phelps Phan!!! Congratulations to Michael Phelps!

Fun with Google images and photoshop...and bacon sandwiches...hmm

So I'd like to say that my friend Spud came by last week and posed with me while eating 1 of 4 "Baconator" sandwiches he ordered from Wendy's....but he didn't. So when I reminded him that he needed to be sitting on me while he dined so that I could catch some of that delicious bacon grease, his response was more than enough motivation: "Use a vegetable caricature of me eating my pork and beef burger delicacy!" And with that, I created what you see below. I can already smell the fluid pig fat dripping onto my southern hemisphere. MMmmmm... Enjoy.

It might not seem like it to the average onlooker, but I am a sectional. However, my constituent base constantly refers to me as a regional, because of my geographically-themed epidermis. At any rate, check out this Online Breathalyzer Test @ RUPissed? --Wouldn't want you throwing up on me now would we?

MapCouch Presents...Strange Maps!

In keeping with the spirit and tradition that is my cartographical greatness, I present you to the coolest blog that has yet to feature the MapCouch; BUT SHOULD. The blog in question, Strange Maps, features random tandem Atlases (or is it Atli?) and maps that have been made either for strange reasons, or that feature strange ways of displaying the geography that appears on them. As mentioned above, for an unknown reason, I have yet to be featured on this terrific blog, and feel that I fit right in. Thus, I request that everyone reading this post head on over to Strange Maps and leave them a comment. Something to the effect of, 'you are missing out on the coolest, strangest map ever made' will do perfectly fine.

MapCouch Tip:
Be sure to check out the cheese map of Canada @ Strange Maps!
