The Empty Box

We needed a few boxes so stopped at the liquor store where they always have mountains of them for the taking. The liquor store is the best source for free boxes if you don't mind all the advertising on them. It's also the best source for booze and beer. And wine if you're in to that kind of thing. ;)
So we're rooting through the pile and .. what's this? A perfectly pristine plain brown box. Completely sealed, and completely empty.

And conveniently labeled:

!!! The box sits in my office now as it makes me laugh every time I look at it. I'm sure there's a logical explanation for this but I don't want to hear it. I prefer to revel in the absurdity of it.

Don't read this. It's the explanation you DON"T want to hear.
Such boxes are often used as spacers and/or padding blocks INSIDE other packing cartons. Also caused me to contemplate a comedic universe, first time I ever encountered one.

Yep, that they are. Also for pallet spacing when loading the truck. Or for stacking displays. Although, I have two friends who work for a beer distributor and they said their outfit doesnt do that, they've never seen such an Empty Box. So there. I can continue to enjoy it. ;)
