The Apple Maps schadenfreude festival of hits just keeps coming. Mad Magazine is the latest to pile on Apple following the debacle over the half-baked maps in iOS now being mocked daily, along with CEO Tim Cook's public apology.

Mad also couldn't resist taking a shot at the venerable and oft-monocled New Yorker at the same time in this hilarious mockup of a cover of the magazine that imagines a view of the world as presented with the help of Apple Maps.

A few of the brilliant highlights you can see below include the non-existent border between the Yukon and Chad that runs between the Mississippi River and the Sea of Galilee. Placing Wasilla just above the equator is another master-stroke, although I would have liked to have seen an appearance by Constantinople or the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which Siri tells me can be found just north of Oakland.

What me worry about directions? Mad Magazine
