Ain't it Da Truth!?

Joe Smith started the day early having set his
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. After setting his watch (made in Taiwan)

to the radio (made in India)

he got in his car (made in Germany)

filled it with GAS (from Saudi Arabia )

and continued his search

for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.

At the end of yet another discouraging
and fruitless day checking his
Computer (made in Malaysia),
Joe decided to relax for a while.

He put on his sandals (made in Brazil)
poured himself a glass of wine (made in France)
and turned on his TV (made in Indonesia),

and then wondered
why he can't find

a good paying job

in AMERICA ... :shrug:
