Knockoffs get KO'd


I was impressed with how far Thai knockoffs had come, especially with my water cannon. It was a very good and functional imitation of the same Super Soaker I have back in Canada.

Then I went to the beach and this happened.

My sandals lasted all of three weeks.

The incident reminds me of when I was little and I had the stitching on my Snoopy shirt that I bought in Thailand almost dissolve on me when I went to the beach.

Somehow, I guess Thai knockoff technology seems to have missed the saltwater survival mark.

Can somebody teacher them to use 3M waterproof glue or something?

Let’s hope my nice knockoff Lowe Alpine bag holds together.
