Weetabix Map Omits Welsh Island

Weetabix is in a spot of trouble: its boxes and website have a map of the U.K. that omits the not-insignificant Welsh island of Anglesey (Ynys Môn), and island residents are unhappy about it, in the manner typical of people who feel slighted when their area is left off the map. Weetabix’s response is surprisingly sensible, calling the map “an artist’s impression and not an exact replica of a map of the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.” Because, really: who uses a cereal box to make their way around?
