This is Kamloops, Not Kiev

Stupid things that kind of irritate me department:

I went over to the little Russian/Ukrainian grocery -- it's a great place for cheap + good meats and cheeses (and Kinder Eggs), and a great place to occasionally ogle cute Slavic girls.

While there, I got a chunk of Ukrainian dry salami. I love me some salami, far more often than I should.

I brought it home, and noticed the label: under "KIEV SALAMI," it said "Made in Canada." Which is nowhere near Ukraine (I checked). Perhaps the fault lies with me -- if I'm buying purportedly Ukrainian products, I should look for the Cyrillic labels.

This isn't quite as big as whatever the hullabaloo is over Chinese products, but still, I think Congress should investigate.

You got ripped off, RUSSIAN STYLE. What did you expect?

Yeah, but last time I checked, hockey pucks are made in Slovakia, so it evens out.

At least I think it does.

They say they're made in Slovakia ... but ARE they?

In fairness, I must say that the Canadian salami is pretty damn good.

"Canadian salami." That sounds like some strange fetish.
