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