Strange box for packing

My neighbours from downstairs--I live in a two storey building--are moving out this weekend. Among the boxes they have gathered for packing , I noticed one which seems rather inappropriate for the job.
Call me old fashioned, but isn't this a weird choice for a packing box?

At first, my eyes went large. I was mortified at what kind of monstrosity might have fit in that box. Then I read on the side that there were a hundred pieces per box. Whew.
Very strange choice, indeed. Imagine what their new neighbors will think.

Ah Speculum: one of my favorite words. I don't know why, but I like the whole vulgar invasiveness of the name; maybe because it's not ashamed to just be what it is. Next time I move I'm going to seek out these boxes. :)

RP, that's gross. I can't wrap my head around a whole bloody box of these either. ;)
