The Culturally Confused Item of the Week

America, the melting pot. Where else can you buy Jewish soy sauce?

I saw this one while I was looking for some sesame seed oil. At first, I glanced over it, and my mind said, "Hey, that wasn't the usual faux-Aisian font they usually use on soy sauce..." and upon a second look, I recognized the font as being faux-Hebrew, and chuckled that they would misuse such a font... and then I read the thing and realized they were perfectly serious about having a Hebrew font on a bottle of soy sauce — something about a Jewish boy marrying a Chinese girl, and making lots of good condiments together.

America, what a place.
