The American Dream

                                    The American Dream

Joe Smith started the day early, having set his alarm clock (made in Japan), for 6:00 A.M.

While his coffee pot (made in Japan) is perking,

he puts his blow dryer (made in Taiwan) to work and shaves with his electric razor (made in Hong Kong).

He puts on a dress shirt (made in Taiwan),

his designer jeans (made in Singapore),

and a pair of tennis shoes (made in Korea).

After cooking up some breakfast in his new electric skillet (made in Philippines), he sits down to figure out on his calculator (made in Mexico), how much he can spend today. After setting his watch (made in Switzerland) to the radio (made in Hong Kong), he goes out,

gets in his car (made in Germany) goes looking as he has been for months, for a good paying American job.

After the end of another discouraging and fruitless day, Joe decides to relax for a while. He puts on a pair of sandals (made in Brazil), pours himself a glass of wine (made in France), and turns on his TV (made in Japan), and ponders again why he can't find a good paying American job.
