Celebrating Hondouran Independence

While I was away, I picked up a $5 t-shirt at Target to wear on July 4th. An effort to fit in with my American fiancé. :) Just a simple navy t-shirt with an American flag made up of dots.

I unpacked it from the suitcase tonight, and much to my chagrin, the label said "Made in Hondouras". Somehow that just seems wrong. Lots of clothing is made outside of the US... but a 4th of July shirt made in Hondouras just doesn't exude Independence Day to me.

I don't know where Hondouras is, but I can see what you mean. Like a Canada Day shirt being made in Taiwan...

Of course, I think there are more Taiwanese in Canada now than Taiwan... =)

In TO, possibly. In SJ, still the whitest city around, even with increased Asian population ;)

Not sure about that... Barrie may take the crown as the hispanic guy was asked to leave; making my family the closest thing to a visible minority there.
