On the packaging:

"Warning to other vehicles and passers by"

Warning that the driver has ridiculously bad taste? That last precaution is a doozy!

Only clean grease is permitted on the installation location.

Chances are an American thought of the design, or God forbid, a German and then outsourced it to Asia.

$4.71 US for the item - $20.20 for (express) shipping - go figure...

Wow.....Chinese Junk at its finest! That is one of the worst translations I've ever seen!

I'm going to guess they don't have permission to use the star either....or anyone else's logo.

Sure - you ever see a picture of a Visigoth? I would say that the modern-day run-of-the-mill Sasquatch has evolved!
