pop quiz today

#1, What is wrong with this picture?

North OR South

If you said, “It presents a fantasy land where polar bears, restricted to the northern hemisphere, coincide with penguins, restricted to the southern hemisphere, and, further, that teaching a poor little kid this will only serve to humiliate him later when he gets into an argument about it that goes ad hominem and is only ended with stomping to retrieve an Encyclopedia,” you were right.

#2 (extra credit), Who is to blame — the artist (Nadeem Zaidi) or the writer (Julie Aigner-Clark)?

Puffin

Hint: puffins do live in the same hemisphere as polar bears.
