Christo two-fer

Here's another in our collection of map-related comics with artist themes. Y'know this post would have been perfectly topical back in 2005 when Christo [and Jeanne-Claude] did [their] installation in New York City's Central Park. However it's fun enough now to see two completely different cartoonists doing two completely different jokes using almost the same exact imagery.  I just wonder why the one has the tied-up part on the North Pole while the other has it on the South Pole.
