They say that there's a broken light for every heart on Broadway.
They say that life's a game, then they take the board away.
They give you masks and costumes and an outline of the story
Then leave you all to improvise their vicious cabaret...

The only similarity I see is that both are green. But that differs from map to map. On the following map, Scotland is, in fact, yellow:

You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

It's the shape!
The oval in the middle is the body and the highlands and the area south of glasgow, edinburgh are the legs!

Actually, Sweden is the penis. Finland is the balls. Norway is best left out, as they did on Euro coins because Norway isn't part of the EU.

Ah, the Romans. Still bitter that they never managed to conquer Ireland. :lol:
