Kinda Funny

The Chinese, is there anything they don't manufacture? From the BBC:

Police in southern China have discovered a factory manufacturing Free Tibet flags, media reports say.

The factory in Guangdong had been completing overseas orders for the flag of the Tibetan government-in-exile.

Workers said they thought they were just making colourful flags and did not realise their meaning.

But then some of them saw TV images of protesters holding the emblem and they alerted the authorities, according to Hong Kong's Ming Pao newspaper.

The factory owner reportedly told police the emblems had been ordered from outside China, and he did not know that they stood for an independent Tibet.

Workers who had grown suspicious checked the meaning of the flag by going online.
Sad thing is, now they'll shoot the factory owner for his ignorance. Then the factory workers for finding the flags on the internet. Then they'll contaminate the flags with lead and ship them anyway.
