My wife is organizing a Chinese New Year party for my daughter's kindergarten class today. She ordered some decorations, including a banner. Unfortunately, the banner arrived in less-than-stellar condition, and said "Happy New Yeap!!!".

And it makes me laugh all the more that the banner was made in China.

Every year I give a chuckle when it's time to roast a turkey for Thanksgiving. We drag out the big, cheap roasting pan I bought some years back. On the front of the box in big letters it said

"NON-SICK PAN"

So we feel nicely protected from getting sick with salmonella from improperly cooked turkeys, given that we're using a special non-sick pan.
