Project CRAP: Week 32 Report

Click here for the explanation of Project CRAP
Box size: 15" wide by 11" tall by 9" deep.
Total Weight of CRAP: 26.38 lbs
Depth of CRAP: 10"
New Pieces of CRAP: 12
Total Pieces of CRAP: 405
LowLight of the Week: Although Skor does love Ikea, he had no choice but to award them this week's LowLight award, considering that the un-requested catalog they sent out weighed in at more than a pound. Filled with all sorts of product names like Kramfors and Revinge, Skor finds himself more doubtful with every turn of the page that these names have Swedish roots. Skor still thinks that Ikea is secretly mocking us with their product names. With a child's bedroom set named Blimp (pictured), it's hard to think that they're not making fun of America's fat children.

Dishonorable Mention: Hey there you scum-of-the-earth renter! What are you doing sitting there when you could be plunking down your hard-earned dollars on a condo? As you can see, at Martha's Landing, you can have it all! Because you're a total loser if you don't own your home.

Comments: If not for Ikea, this week's CRAP would have come in below the average weight. But thanks to Ikea, this week's CRAP set a new Project CRAP record at 1.69 pounds, even beating out the first week's take of 1.34 pounds. Now, if you'll excuse Skor, he needs to go get some cheap Kläppe, Antifoni, and Septim. No those are not made up. They are real prodokt names found in the Ikea katoleg.

I can attest that the product names at IKEA are the same in Sweden as they are in the states, so I'm afraid that your conspiracy theory is unfounded. It is true that on average our kids are fatter than theirs though.
