Our President is an Idiot

Tom Bihn, Inc. in Port Angeles, WA makes travel gear and clothing. Per federal regulations, they include a label with washing instructions, and (presumably) because of their proximity to the Great White North the labels also include instructions in French. Someone recently noticed that in addition to the usual "warm wash, machine dry" info, the French version included: Nous sommes désolés que notre président soit un idiot. Nous n’avons pas voté pour lui. Translation: We are sorry that our president is an idiot. We did not vote for him.

The eponymous company president, Tom Bihn, apologies for the prank by someone at the factory. He says he's not sure if they are referring to himself, George Bush, or Jacques Chirac.
