the chairman and me

Short post today.

Today's Instagram topic was Time.

I took a picture of my Chairman Mao wristwatch. I think the world doesn't have quite enough cruel oppressive dictator wristwatches.

A friend of mine brought me this from China, about 10 years ago. Mao's arm rocks back and forth as the second hand. It doesn't keep very accurate time, but then again, it's Chairman Mao, which means it's always right.

I also have a Chairman Mao backpack. You may have noticed it in the photograph I posted from my visit to Foothill Technology High School last week. It's not like I'm into Chairman Mao or anything. I just happened to have received both of these things as gifts.
