Now, see, after the Cuban Missile Crisis, the US and the Soviet Union were looking for ways to try and get along. One of the ways was to start some trade between the two nations. However, it quickly became clear that trade would just be another front in the Cold War, as each nation tried to psychologically one-up the other with their orders. For instance, the Soviets ordered condoms made to fit foot long dicks. The United States responded by filling the order, the condom boxes marked "Medium." Hope you hadn't heard that one yet.
