Notícia do Telegraph:

Etymologists and wordsmiths will take particular interest in a new set of maps going on sale in time for Christmas.
The traditional names for the world's cities, countries, rivers and mountains have been altered on an atlas to reflect their origins and literal meaning.
Chicago, for example, is renamed Stink Onion and Cameroon is called the Land of Shrimps.

Acho uma delícia. Pode comprar-se aqui.
