Things that make you go hmmmmmm.....

A boy in Elisha's class celebrated his birthday yesterday. I seem to be telling a few Elisha stories this week. He is rather entertaining. Aside from his new ever-so-lovely habit of breaking into the most annoying fake baby tears whenever anything does not go his way. And I mean anything. But I digress.

Back to the birthday.

This boy celebrated his birthday yesterday. And rather than a goody bag of random crap, he gave out one larger item.

It was a mini-basketball hoop. Elisha loves it. He brought it over to show me. The whole thing is about five inches wide by three inches tall. Made in China.

Here it is. Read it carefully.

Can you see what the little words are? Oh you can't? I'll help you.

New interesting body building.


Oh, you mean it's irritating when Elisha tries to slam dunk the ping pong ball sized ball and breaks the whole darned thing.

Why yes, it is. Thanks for the warning.

Hopefully he's bulked up his muscles, though.

I mean, it is both interesting and body building.

And irritating as well.

A little something got lost in translation, no?

That DOES make you go hmmmm :).

Hey thanks for stopping by my blog. So you're thinking of painting your countertop, huh? Can you keep a secret? I just painted my laminate countertop in my master bathroom. I'm planning on posting something the beginning of next week. If it makes you feel better, it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be.

Have a great day!

It's made in China!!!!! Do you need more explanation than that? You go to the dollar store - you can find lots of interesting packaging slogans on their China made toys. It can actually make for a very entertaining trip to the dollar store.

Oh "made in China," you're always good for a laugh...or lead poisoning.
Stopping by through SITS to leave some comment love. Mostly because you roll called AFTER me, ha ha ha. Good news. People roll called after you too! We weren't the last!!!

Good grief. First the milk...then the lead in toys...and now this. Let's call for an embargo. :) cute post.

That is a bit odd, but I imagine with the downturn in the economy, the design crew behind it is "less than par" and they had to take what they could get. Just my thought!...
Have a great weekend! said...

I do hope these fun posts mean that Mr. Dovi is doing well still?!

What could they mean by irritating? Yep, has to be lost in translation!

We are all insanely jealous of your restaurants. I will not tell you how many hours we have driven in order to eat at Ken's. Hubby wants to move there just to live nearby. Oy! Glad you are okay.
