Worst. Map. Ever.

Sometimes humor arises from unexpected places.

Last month I traveled to Alice, Texas to do a Phase I ESA on a recently constructed shop. The shop was so recently constructed, in fact, that it didn't appear on any of the aerial photographs I had. Also, its address didn't map correctly when entered into a GPS. I was able to find the place based on driving directions from the client, but once I was there, there were no obvious landmarks to help me figure out where "there" was. So I asked the client to mark the site location on an aerial, or alternatively, to provide me with a map showing the property.

Here's what I got:

worst aerial ever

When I replied that this aerial was not very helpful, I got:

worst map ever

But, despite the lack of useful information, my ESA still needed to include a map (it's required, by law). As I was contemplating this situation, Corey IM'd me. Corey is one of our CAD/GIS drafters here in the office - he's a huge Cowboys fan & we trash-talk NFL-style all year round. Here's the IM conversation we had about making that map:

Best. IM convo. Ever!

Oops. Broke the Cowboys fan.

Have you seen the personalized game controller for Cowboys fans? Pretty much every button is 'Romo interception', 'become second best team in Texas' etc.

No!!! Where can I find this?

(I'm sure there's an equally awful Eagles controller out there. Unless the assumption is that the Eagles are never in control of the game...)
