China

Some friend may have watched this movie, I have been wondering about one part: Homer jumps into a square sandy hole in order to escape, people grab his head, after he disappears, suddenly the hole whirls, house, clock, lots of things are involved, then a mess. And the cop says " Now there are China's trouble" Well, that seems no good, I couldn't help to wonder does this mean dumping of China ?

I think that this actually refers to the myth here in America that if you dug a hole deep enough, you would end up in China. Many Americans see China as being on the opposite side of the world since America is considered Western and China is considern Eastern. My mother used to tell me, as a child, when I was in the yard digging, not to dig too deep or I would dig a hole to China. I hope that this helps to clear things up for you a little!
