I like the America picture as it reinforces everybody's preconceived ideas about Americans. (I think it's a Photoshop makeover, though.)

PS...I go to the USA often and would like to say that Americans are NOT the big fat slobs they are made out to be by the rest of the world.

When I was younger and thinner than I am now, I found a place that gave the weights of people and how they were categorized. LOL, I would have been considered obese, then, by world standards. Obviously, just going by weight doesn't mean much.

My son is 12 and 5'9", and looks somewhat like a hulk. When we walk to school, we pass by older adult asians and hispanics who are tiny in comparison and look like they must weigh 80 lb.s. There are such different proportions!
