lost in translation

i visited one of the largest malls in hong kong, called festival walk. at first glance, it was exactly the same as an american mall, right down to the store brands. however, we did a little work and started to find some real jewels, like the one below.

we were at a clothing store, the coolest, most local that we could find, a chinese h&m. i spotted a shirt on the wall. it was a hip shirt, with a hip american college on it. what college did they pick, the college among colleges, the classic american college to represent the pinnacle of our celebrated university system?

central fucking michigan university.
