In which Erik's true heritage is revealed

Here is Erik.  He is a handsome young man of German extraction.
Don't doubt me and my winning smile!

...or is he?  Behold, Scottish Daddy!

Aye laddie!  Busted!
All of these trips to the Fatherland, all of these so-called relatives.  Learning German.  Pah.  A ruse to deny his kilt-wearing ancestry.  The good people at DK First Atlas have shown us the truth!

Still don't believe me?  Well, check out this side-by-side comparison, oh ye doubters!

Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?

 My head is spinning.  Is it this one?  Or that one?  This?  That?  And what other falsehoods await exposure in our children's reference books?  I'll be sleeping with one eye open, friends.
