It Takes A Q-Tip

I was getting ready to go out this morning, and I reached for a newly purchased canister of makeup applicators: foam tipped Q-tips. I realized I'd be better off if I were going outsourcing.
Glancing at the writing on the back I noted, with some amazement, that not only were they perfect for "the application and blending of make up," they were also distributed out of Los Angeles via a distribution point in Wokingham, United Kingdom while imported via Neuvo Leon, Mexico, but "Made in China." Hillary Clinton was right. It truly does take a village.

So they go from China to Mexico to the UK to Los Angeles? Shouldn't they just go from Mexico to LA?

Insert immigration joke here.

People who think they can stop globalization are sadly misdirected.
