Crap wrap

This is way off topic for this blog, but I saw a story about it this morning while reading over someone's shoulder on the subway and it was too good not to post.
Bored of perfectly folded paper and exquisitely tied ribbon? Fancy adding a more ‘personal’ touch this year? Then why not have your Christmas presents CrapWrapped™ at Firebox. This exclusive, uniquely shoddy gift wrapping option involves us wrapping your pressies in a slapdash fashion.


Too much offensive brown tape, untidily hacked at wrapping paper, rips in the packaging exposing the surprise underneath. Indeed, it takes a high degree of skill to deliberately wrap a present this poorly, so to confirm authenticity some tipsy bloke wearing boxing gloves and a sack on his head will slap a genuine CrapWrapped™ label on the completed mess.

A refreshing alternative to the perfectly wrapped gifts you see in sugary Christmas movies, CrapWrap™ represents a novel twist on this whole wrapping malarkey. Aww, you shouldn’t have!
Here's a picture. Heh.

Why spend money having someone do it for you when most people do the same lousy job themselves.

Now on the other hand, my gifts are always perfectly wrapped and absolutely beautiful to look at. I worked a Christmas season in Macy's at the gift wrap desk.

This must be an American idea. Sometimes I want to disown the place.......(roll eyes)
