NOUS SOMMES DESOLES QUE NOTRE PRESIDENT SOIT UN IDIOT

The inside label carries instructions on washing and caring for the bags. Because the bags are sold in Canada, the instructions are also printed in French. The French version, however, contains an additional phrase: “NOUS SOMMES DESOLES QUE NOTRE PRESIDENT SOIT UN IDIOT. NOUS N’AVONS PAS VOTE POUR LUI.”

Translated to English, the phrase reads, “We are sorry that our President is an idiot. We did not vote for him.”

The “secret” message began as an inside joke among seamstresses and staff at the Tom Bihn factory, and was apparently intended to poke fun at company’s founder and president, Tom Bihn.

Their CEO is an idiot and they did not vote for him? Yeah, sure that’s who they meant…
