A French satirical cartoon map of Europe in 1870[1] is the informal title to a satirical map of Europe.

Its subscript reads:

"Britannia, Full of Rage Almost Forgets Ireland. Spain, Smoking, Leans On Poor Portugal. France Fighting the Invader, Prussia, Which Stretches One Hand Towards Holland the Other Towards Austria. Italy Says to Bismark, "Take Off Your Foot." Corsica and Sardinia, A Little Joker, Laughs Over Everything. Denmark Lost His Legs in Holstein, Hoping to Retake Them Again. European Turkey Yawns and Awakens. Asiatic Turkey Sucks Her Hookah. Sweden Bounds A La Panther; and Russia Resembles A Rag Picker, Waiting His Chance to Fill His Basket."
