I used to work across the street from a box factory. It was actually a nice building.

it's raining pretty hard tonight here in chicago, but tomorrow might be a good day to go see the soggy mound of brown pulp museum.

Don't listen to him kid. This is a dream factory, the birthplace of magic, and enchantment! Now, I need you to go clean out my toilet.

Hammocks! Why didn't I think of that?

I think it's a pretty cool exhibit. Would have picked the cool tag most likely.

The Cardboard Box was inducted into the Toy Hall Of Fame, along with The Stick.

A plastic bag, but the bag costs you 5 cents.

What a box factory might look like.

One year when I was little, my family toured a cardboard box factory while we were on vacation. It was actually pretty fascinating.

When will we get to see a finished box?

A lot of manufacturing businesses have factory tours that are open to the public.

My favorite, other than brewery, winery, and distillery tours, has been the Kikkoman soy sauce brewery in Noda, Japan. The tour is free, and you get a bottle of soy sauce to take home with you.
