Until you realize it's a city in China named USA and not U.S.A.

Ha ha! That’s an old one... in the 70s the rumor was that a city in Japan was named “Usa”. All imported products have to have a COO designation (country of origin) legally, though, so if it says USA, it’s probably made here.

Saipan

A island north of Guam won in ww2 is a u.s. territory thats mostly chinese people. It was exempt from u.s. labor laws. So Levis could pay factory workers pennies

As a u.s. territory clothing makers could label stuff "made in the u.s.a."

Reminds me of how China has a CE logo that looks almost identical to the CE mark in the EU that signifies a product that's been tested for safety. China's version simply means China Export, i.e. this product will likely burn your house down or electrocute you if it doesn't fail first. Never change, China.
