Some electronic humor

Back in about 1950 Philips assembled tubes in Norrköping here in Sweden. The parts arrived separately in form of anodes, grids, glass cage, heater etc. from Philips in the Netherlands. They were however marked as "Made in Sweden" but the only part that in fact was of Swedish origin was the vacuum.

A long time ago I received a "specification" for a "Polish operational amplifier" on a data sheet from National Semiconductor. I don't think this comes from NS but I had very fun reading it.
