Memes: Colombia vs. Columbia

Today marks Colombia's Declaration of Independence, and we'd like to start by tipping our hats off to the colombianos and colombianas in our lives.

It's sad to note how much people still confuse the spelling of the gorgeous country with that of "Columbia." They are clearly two different words, yet it's a slight slip-up that many Colombians have to deal with from others - call it one of their #ColombianProblems. A Facebook group was even created titled "It's Colombia, NOT Columbia," which boasts more than 15,000 fans and aims to change the perception those abroad have of Colombia.

We decided to gather Internet memes that reflect the whole "Colombia" vs. "Columbia" frustration - below are just a few to laugh at, or to send to that one friend who keeps on making the same spelling error.
