Sino Tangent

The irony is so obvious it's almost not funny.

Red, white and blue cardboard box with Americana Collection label
This set of small-town buildings, meant as a Christmas decoration, is made in China, despite its all-American name.

Side label including note, Made in China
Liberty Falls, jeez. It's like an elbow in the ribs.

And were they America's growing years or were they its "growing years"? (That's one for the Blog of Unnecessary Quotation Marks.)

Resin cast gray school house
But worst of all is the problem with the school house. It's cute and all, but we expect more from our institutions of learning.

Close up of school house sign reading GRAMMER SCHOOL
Like how to spell the word grammar.

I’d buy it for the irony.

The school must be named for that great American writer Samuel Clemen, eh?

Someone in China must have spent some time in Liberty Falls.
