CPSIA - Thoughts of A Passover Miracle

A friend sent me this and I thought it was funny:

When my ship at N.Y.C. did land,
Let my apparel go!
Lead content at too high a ppm,
Let my apparel go!

Refrain:

Go down, Rick Woldenberg,
Way down to Bethesda Maryland;
Tell old Thomas Moore-oh
To let my children’s products go!

"The crystals on your shirts, they do not comply”,
Let my apparel go!
So they detained my products without blinking an eye
Let my apparel go!

(Refrain)

“There’s no risk to children!” I did decree,
Let my apparel go!
”There’s nothing we can do” said CPSC,
Let my apparel go!

(Refrain)

So to my Congressman I did protest,
Let my apparel go!
And demanded he fix this CPSIA mess!
Let my apparel go!

(Refrain)

He told me to go back to the CPSC,
Let my apparel go!
And see if there’s an exemption that they can grant me,
Let my apparel go!

(Refrain)

With no exemption I’m cooked o woe is me,
Let my apparel go!
From now on I can only manufacture plain white tees,
Let my apparel go!

I will admit to changing one word . . . . Let's hope someone's listening. I am not looking forward to a world without rhinestones.

I don't think we'll have to live in a world without rhinestones. We'll just have to live in a world where parents put rhinestones on their kids' own clothes.

In related news, I'm making my autistic son a sensory necklace. With fewer special needs items available off-the-rack, parents of special needs kids are just going to have to become jacks-of-all-trades and learn to work in many media. Next up is a weighted vest for him to wear to school. It's a good thing I'll have all this extra time on my hands once CPSIA has put me out of business!
