John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6 a.m. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN KOREA). He put on adress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA ), designer jeans (MADE IN HONG KONG) and leather shoes (MADE IN PHILIPPINES). After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA), he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO) to see how much he could spend today. After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA), he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY) filled it with gas from Saudi Arabia and continued his search for a good paying American job.
At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his computer (made in MALAYSIA), John decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL), poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN CHILE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA ), and then wondered why he isn't able to find a good paying American job.
And now he's hoping he can get help from a president...with genes made in Kenya.
