Czech online news site Týden reports that going to the lowest bidder, especially in another country with a slightly different script, doesn’t always pay.  Iran had a cheap version of the Koran printed in China, only to discover that the work is fully of typos.  Iranian officials are now debating whether the Chinese version of the Koran should be altogether banned.

The moral of the story is that Chinese goods tend to be somewhat shoddy, and that makes me wonder why the hell we keep buying the stuff.

One thing’s for sure, though.  I’ll never buy a Chinese Torah!
