Sneaky French

Noted in passing ...

Someone at Tom Bihn, a Port Angeles manufacturer of backpacks and luggage, decided to append the following detailed explanation on the care tags attached to some of the company's goods:
Nous sommes desoles que notre president soit un idiot. Nous n'avons pas vote pour lui.

Which translates:
"We are sorry our president is an idiot. We didn't vote for him."

Bihn himself told the P-I he thinks whoever did it was talking about him and not, say, some other unnamed president. He's also a pretty enlightened boss, as far as that goes, saying he has no intention of tracking down the workplace subversive: "There are bigger fish to fry."

Of course, the fine folks at Free Republic are organizing a boycott. As if any of them were buying Tom Bihn goods beforehand.
