Ridicurous Engrish: Stationery No.1

What's the story?

I was gearing up to choose my best witty quip to accompany this rubber called ‘morning glory’, when I discovered that astonishingly there is actually a LEGITIMATE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE ENGLISH WORDS ON THE OBJECT AND THE OBJECT ITSELF.  From the Wikipedia page:

“Ancient Mesoamerican civilizations used the morning glory species Ipomoea Alba to convert the latex from the Castilla elastica tree and also the guayule plant to produce bouncing rubber balls.”

Some might say that it’s still a ridiculous name for a piece of stationery, but I would just say roll with it.
