While I never had the privilege of owning a lunchbox (I was born and raised in a communal farm in Soviet Russia), a lot of other human beings and merciless human imposters did. They all relate a strangely horrifying shared experience of lugging around a heavy metallic box filled with the grim reminder that eating is not always a pleasure. But hey, the boxes had pretty cool pictures so in the end it all balanced out. Recently, the Something Awful Forum Goons decided to come to terms with their traumatic lunchbox memories by fighting back against the false facades of prettiness, creating truly undesirable lunchboxes as part of the healing process. Like all pursuits on the Internet, it was a truly worthwhile usage of time and resources. Please enjoy, because somebody has to.

Smelly 98blacksnake got things started this week.

I dug up this time capsule from 1994. Oh wait, it's actually jrichmond68's sense of humor and not a time capsule.

Snodar's lunchbox is full of surprises. :)

It ain't easy being plastickiwi's lunch. On the plus, side life is short.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

    BarkWire.com Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
