In his very Ryan way he said "Mom, Dad, guess what. One of the hotwheels cars is from Liberia!".
"REALLY?" we responded in our very supportive-but-incredulous voices. "Bring it in here and show us."
He brought in the car and a kids dictionary which had all of the flags of the world (as of about 1985) in it.
Sure enough, right above the rear wheels was a little flag. And sure enough it was the Liberian flag!
"I read about this a few days ago. I saw the flag on the car and was just wondering what it was so I looked it up and there was just one word 'Liberia'".
That's Ryan for you.
