Product That Plays The National Anthem Of Its Country Of Manufacture

(Pushes coffee maker button, La Marseillaise plays) "Hmm. My coffee maker was made in France."

Your blow dryer is made in England? God Save The Queen serenades you while you dry your hair. Blender plays the Spanish national anthem. Do you know what that means? That's right, it was made in Spain.

This would encourage people to buy stuff made in countries other than China because having all your appliances play the Chinese national anthem would be annoying.

       But how would you distinguish products manufactured in the UK from those manufactured in Liechtenstein? *

[* this also applies to any other pair of countries whose national anthems share the same tune - e.g. Tanzania/Zambia, Finland/Estonia, Greece/Cyprus]

       Have it sing.

       Perhaps Japanese products could scream "BANZAI ! " just before they self-destruct ?

       This is more than one product? As in, products?

       Possibly. But it wouldn't work grammatically - "Products that Plays...", you see?

       Could be referring to "product" as a group, like "Has the product arrived? It's a shipment of blenders that play the national anthem of Spain. We're out of product, we need more product, how can we stay in business without product? Get me more product or you're all fired! I need 12,000 tons of product by tomorrow!"   

       Obviously I would only be suggesting one of these solutions to the glaring problem of non-national anthem playing appliances. Not all 3 of the examples given, one would suffice.   

       This is clearly what I uh... meant.

       No, actually I meant "Pick one and only one of these. This will be the chosen product that deals with the non-national anthem playing appliance crisis."   

       Yes, THAT'S what I meant. Forget the other bullshit about... whatever it is I said.
