I went to a supply store that sells various wares for vendors. I picked up a large sign stating "Made in the U.S.A." - on the back of the sign there was a sticker "Made in China."

I thought it meant 'No left turn' and then they changed their mind and crossed it out! Duh!
There is a book written about J Edgar Hoover and the FBI titled "No Left Turns." It's a good book, BTW. In it the author tells about Hoover's driver. It seems that one day Hoover was being driven somewhere in DC and his car was in an accident when the driver tried to turn left. So, Hoover told the driver to never, ever turn left again. Needless to say the guy had to make many right turns to get Hoover to where he needed to be after that.
True story and a funny one, to boot.
