I had seen this before but lost the link before I could blog it. Luckily Carthik stumbled upon it as well; he even has a picture. This is about an American company that makes backpacks and bags and, if I remember correctly, sells a sizeable portion of its production in Canada, and maybe (hopes to be present) in France as well. Whatever the reason, the washing instruction lables inside their products are bilingual, English and French.

Here is the English translation of the French version, taken from the above linked site; but with a few (irrelevant) corrections:

  • Hand-wash in lukewarm water
  • Use mild soap
  • Dry flat
  • Do not bleach
  • Do not machine dry
  • Do not iron
  • We are sorry that
  • Our president is an idiot
  • We didn’t vote for him

According to this urban legends site, the company’s owner Tom Bihn claims to have been unaware of this initiative, which was taken by one of the bag manufacturer’s employees.
