made in america

Speaking of the Olympics and international relations...

Joe Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6am. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG). He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA).

After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA), he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. He set his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN SWITZERLAND), then got into his car (MADE IN GERMANY) and drove around town in search of a good paying career.

At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day, Joe decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL), poured himself a glass of fermented grape juice (MADE IN FRANCE), and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA). As he watched a foreign movie with subtitles, he couldn't figure out for the life of him why he couldn't find a good paying job in AMERICA.
