Souvenir of the Week

I picked this up at a candy store yesterday - a chocolate tin that doubles as a piece of anti-communist propaganda.

The comrades are brandishing tainted products that have come out of China the last few years: soy sauce, toothpaste, frozen dumplings. And Chairman Mao is saluting them with a glass of milk (presumably the tainted milk that killed six babies and sickened thousands last year). Notice Mao also has a SARS armband, may as well throw that in too, just so no one is confused on the point China is full of communists and other things harmful to one's health.
