Zones are great! You see, all of the materials, like the cotton
and polyester, get shipped from America. Economically, the free
zones are not recognized as belonging to any nation. So in comes
the cotton, out goes The Gap! Or any one of your favorite name
brands! Your favorite fashion items cost anywhere from 13 to
18 cents. The clothes normally go right back on the ship, bound
for your favorite American shopping mall. Made in America all
the way! Come visit us in person, and the savings get passed
on to you! Who can resist! We're in hundreds of countries!
visit our state of the art bathrooms! Our employees use
these, but they are only allowed to go once a day, so
feel free to freshen up!
you're here, you might as well get a taste of the local flavor.
Check out the neighborhoods where our employees work! They are
very hospitable and will surely offer our fine shoppers a cup
of tea and sympathy, so to speak!
getting tired? These are huge outlets, huh? Take a rest in any
one of our bedrooms! Our employees sleep here, but they won't
mind! They work until after midnight and wake up at dawn. So
take a load off! This bedroom sleeps two! The occupants are
busy sewing "swooshes" for you. Nighty-night!
hope you've enjoyed your little tour of our wonderful Free Zone
Factory Outlet. Not only are we passing savings on to you, our
customer, we are also helping third world economies. We are providing
jobs to people all over the world, who would otherwise starve
to death! With tax incentives abound, no need to comply with any
laws, and salaries at $30 US annually, we win, the workers win,
and you, our dear customers, win!
