Creepy Chinese souvenir of the week 

The Chinese hawk little glass globes that have been painted on the inside. Many of them are kind of attractive, at least to the extent that any $15 widely-produced souvenir can be. This design, however, gives me the creeps:

Click on it and examine it closely if you cannot already see that it is the World Trade Center in flames.

The good news is that I only saw one of this design, so they obviously aren't big sellers. The bad news is that today's Chinese never make anything for which they do not perceive a ready market.

Um, shocking! The epitomy of bad taste with a capital B!!!
