Made in the World

I found this tag on a shopping cart, the kind we housewives use here in Spain when we hike to the market to buy groceries. A new supermarket opened in the neighborhood, and the lucky first thousand customers got a free cart. With all the concerns about plastic shopping bags these days, shopping carts are an old-fashioned habit that has now become fashionably green.

The cart is nice enough, but the tag caught my eye: "MADE IN THE WORLD."

Well, I hope so.

But perhaps it could be more specific about where in the world.

At least, it could specify which world.
