They Make EVERYthing

You mean to tell me we can't even make these here?

To be honest, though, the people who placed the order thought they were getting something to relieve menstrual pains.


Think about it.

    1. Ding ding ding ding ding ding ding...we have a winner.
      I'll be honest, I was a little hesitant posting this. But, then I freely admit that I would absolutely butcher Mandarin Chinese.
      For instance, I have no clue how to properly say "General Tso's Chicken."

  3. I'm thinking about it but I really don't want to. They don't make EVERYTHING. Some things are still made in Taiwan.

    1. Technically Taiwan is part of China. They officially call themselves the Republic of China. The island managed to stay independent from Mao's communist mainland.

    2. Very true. Taiwan says they're China...China says Taiwan is China. In our lifetime, I bet we see Taiwan invaded.
      I know...I'm such a buzz kill.
      But, seriously, I remember when "Made in China"=Crap.
      Not so much anymore.

  4. It's crazy the amount of things made by China and some places. I'm trying to think Al but just like Mark I'm doing so with some severe apprehension in place.

    1. You know the funny thing I found in Macy's which ISN'T made in China? China. It was made in Luxembourg. I know. Go figure.

  5. Ah, but they don't say "Made in..." so clearly this means the clamps were made by a company named China. (Of course, it's probably a Mexican company. We don't make anything here.)

  6. So China is "literally" putting the squeeze on us!

  9. Obviously, you didn't find these at Walmart.
    They are pushing for people to buy Made in America. Which coming from Walmart, I find hilarious.

    1. Well, apparently, nobody is buying the American-made toothbrushes, deodorant, or back hair shavers.

      Delete
    2. The fact that there is such a thing as back hair shavers concerns me.

  10. Oh yes, I was cursing like a sailor when I opened the UPS package. It only made my cramps worse. And I once dated a guy who boycotted all products made in China. This meant he had one set of clothes and never bought (me) a damn thing. And, since you got me started, I had to replace a Toyota part today. This involves two steps and at least a week's wait because the parts are made in...Japan. Seems everything but Prius parts are made in China.

  11. I thought those things were old fashioned penis pumps.

  12. Are those medieval torture instruments? I never realised the Chinese were so advanced, I thought they used sharpened bamboo sticks.

    1. They'll probably work on thumbs if needed, too.

  14. I could most certainly relieve my menstrual pain with those. By embedding them in a few skulls.

  19. These would be the tools of Dr. Mengele OB-GYN...

    China just didn't start making all this stuff to export to us out of the clear blue sky. The mfg. processes were shipped to them by greedy people here who for some reason, can never get rich enough. In MHO, that is...

  20. Tell me about it! Did a post on this in 2011-GOLD STICKER SHOCK! Everything I picked up had a gold effin' sticker that said "Made in China". Whenever I come across those now I peel them off and throw them away. I try really hard now to buy Made in USA which is probably really made of materials made in China. You can't win! And the quality is crap! China is out for world domination. This is when the apocalypse is going to happen. I better get my "Made in China" backpack, survival gear, and flashlight ready!

    First it was "Made in Japan"...now those things are highly collectible. Don't tell me shit made in China is going to be the next valuable commodity!
