Let's Go International

Someone sent me this funny email and thought I'd play along except that I'd do it as a blog-post (to keep it going) instead of as an email.

I've continued where it left off. You can play too. Just continue where I left off (the last entry) - leave your input as a comment and I'll link you on this post.

Bear in mind though that your input must make sense to the context of the story. Let's make it a rule to indicate the country of where the blogger is from, eg., (Made in Japan) if you are from Japan, etc.

This is fun! Come on.. join in! Get linked..


John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN) for 6am.

While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG).

He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA )

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 FRANCE) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in AMERICA

AND NOW HE'S HOPING HE CAN GET HELP FROM A PRESIDENT (MADE IN KENYA)

With his new purple cellphone (Made in Malaysia) - HappySurfer

he decided to make a call, but stopped short. He sat down on his plush leather sofa (Made in Malaysia)- Foong PC

Sitting on his plush leather sofa he phoned his girl friend, [Made in Bristol - UK] - Mick
a man’s voice answered.

The voice on the phone asked: Are you delivering the wine today? (Made in South Africa) - Evl
Thinking it was his imported wine delivery that was late.

Thoughts raced through his mind as he searched for words......(Made in Malaysia) - Mei Teng

After few seconds of silence, he said “Sorry, I think I dialed the wrong number.” (Made in the Philippines) - Rej

Then putting down the receiver, (Made in Malaysia) - JL
he slapped himself on the forehead in self-chastisement.

Suddenly, the door bell (Made in Malaysia) - Foong PC
rang. He got up to see who was at his front door. Looking from behind the window curtains, he couldn't see anyone at first. And then he gasped!

Y'all gotta Keep this one circulating, please!
