Unclear On The Concept

Our local upscale supermarket is having a weekend "Buy Local" promotion with all sorts of stalls and counters outside in the parking lot. Right in the middle there's a stall selling some sort of organic drink with a whole bunch of claims about how it helps the body; bang in the middle of the other signs there's one saying "Made In New Zealand!!".

Well, why not? It's not like anyone in the USA actually knows where New Zealand is.

Yeah — something about the 51st state also comes to mind…

Yes, that does come to mind. A piece headlined on National Radio last week about US immigrants to NZ who were leaving the USA because they couldn't stomach the invasions of recent times. And then I remembered - they don't do irony over there.
