Apparently overcome by the positive qualities of the 2007 Honda Accord, true-blue American crooner John Mellencamp has written a song praising the dedicated Japanese automotive workers and extolling the virtues of the well-made Japanese sedan. One line from "Buddha On the Highway," is "Oh, you noble land of the rising sun / Where discipline and duty are still number one." The accompanying video features Mellencamp playing his guitar in a typical Asian rice paddy.
Hey, John, that Accord, if sold in the U.S., could have been made by dedicated automotive workers in Ohio. Just so you know.

And, yes, this is a story from The Onion. If you aren't familiar with that publication, please check it out before commenting.
