To "China" and Back
Local government rags can be pretty damn amusing.
Under the heading "Miami Beach Goes 'Around the World,'" a chirpy paragraph describes a recent "interactive learning experience" that took local school kids on imaginary visits to various exotic lands. Attending photos (above) paint a picture. There were hula skirts at the Hawaii display, Eskimo-style jackets in the Antarctica area and at the China counter there was.... uh.... some guy wearing one of those funny sumo wrestler fat suits.
"All the children had a wonderful time and went home with a world of knowledge," the article concludes. - Rob Jordan
