This is a flashcard from the English book my students do with their Chinese English teachers. I don’t know which is more telling, that someone chose Mickey Mouse as the emblem of America (instead of, say, a map) or that, on closer inspection, that’s not really Mickey.

So the symbol my students are keying to my home is a Chinese knockoff of a Disney product.

    Just be happy that “Mickey” isn’t holding a gun…another great American symbol in China
