December 17th, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Jen

Yao Ming has suffered yet another foot injury that could sideline him for the rest of the season and has some people wondering if this doesn’t signal the end of his NBA career.

So what do you do when the career of one of the NBA’s good guys is in jeopardy?  Cue the Yao Ming-Made In China jokes!

Is this meme “racist or stereotypical”?  Good question, “Joey”!

And the answer is: No! It’s racist and stereotypical!  Stay classy, Tweeps.

A Year Without Morons Talking about China–Dare to Dream

July 2nd, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Sara Bongiorni, Suburban Mom From Hell, recently wrote the book A Year Without “Made in China.” Its premise, where one typical American family tries to live for a year without any goods made in China, sounds really smart on paper, and seems to be tapping into the “buy local” movement, which I strongly support. Now watch this interview with Sara:

So what exactly is the point of a boycott of Chinese goods when you are buying goods made in Italy, Germany, and Thailand? Reuters reports:

Bongiorni takes pains to say she does not have a protectionist agenda and, despite the occasional worry about the loss of U.S. jobs to overseas factories, she has nothing against China.

“I wanted our story to be a friendly, nonjudgmental look at the ways ordinary people are connected to the global economy,” she said in an interview before the book appears in July.

Bo-ring and bullshit. Take a stand if you’re going to take a stand.

Oh, and you have mice in your house? Gross. And you’re trying to trap them with water bottles and a tuna can? Good fuckin’ luck.
