I guess that's funny.

I do get seriously confused when people think of Latin America or Southeast Asia in terms of development as on the same level of Sub-Saharan Africa though. It's such an incredibly drastic difference for the most part, that I have to assume some kind of ignorance or complete lack of curiosity for people who make the comparison (as if anything that's not exactly a developed high income country are all about the same).

I kind of get it. It's Africa with South American countries on it. But I still don't get the point.

Is this one of those maps that's meant to mock peoples' lack of knowledge of geography?

lol, south american isnt like africa AT ALL.
You should come by and see.

Besides that, i didnt get the joke. So many countries that do not even appear there, and Uruguay and Chile do not have any names on it. Maybe you should have called Uruguay, "the beach of argentina" (j/K)

Northeast Brazil like Bahia may confuse Americans, but culturally it's still world away from say the Yoruba in Cameroon.

Really? A map of South American countries in Africa? Obviously, you have no idea of geographical locations.
