Every once in a while I find little treasures like this at work. I work in a warehouse that receives almost all of it’s inventory from Taiwan, China, and of course Mexico. Sometimes when breaking down a pallet I find little mementos left by some foreign dock worker. Usually they toss their candy wrappers, empty packs of gum, cigarette butts, and sometimes they leave the occasional empty pack with a guy smoking while holding a young infant. I’m not sure if this particular brand is targeting young fathers who want to seem hip to their young ones, but it sure makes me want to grab a baby and start smoking!
Tonight I came across something a little more intriguing than usual.
It appears to be some sort of Taiwanese Allen & Ginter Flags Of The World knockoff.
If I could read Taiwanese or even possibly Chinese I would know exactly what the hell this is, but I can’t so I have no idea what I have here. On the back it appears it may have some sort of instructions on how to collect these and maybe turn them in for some sort of prize? Again, I have no idea. If anybody could explain why the flag of Sweden is on a card with a bunch of non-Swedish writing on it, I would be most appreciative! I highly doubt anyone will step forward to accept this challenge, so until someone does I am going to go ahead and call this a Taiwanese Flags of The World Tobacco Trading Card. Does anybody have a better guess?
