Memo to Argentina: Los Falklands Aren’t Yours

Did somebody at the Argentine tourist board just get bit by a radioactive vizcacha (pictured)?

Maybe, because according to their glossy new brochure, “Argentina Invites You,” the Falkland Islands are actually “Islas Malvinas (Arg.).” Sorry guys: Here at Voyagiste, we may be no great fans of the British (burning Joan of Arc alive and taxation without representation do not get you an automatic seat at our picnic table), but can we please tamp down the wishful thinking? Seriously, do Germans still draw swastikas over their maps of France? You lost the war that you started, it was humiliating, let’s tango.
