On Christmas Presents


If you are at all unsure of the acceptability of your Christmas (or other) present for a small child — one that is under about seven years old — please remember the following facts.

A cardboard box large enough to hold one or more children is capable of:

  • Doing the Kessel Run in under 11 parsecs
  • Flying faster than Santa
  • Racing from Coast to Coast faster than Jackie Chan
  • Fighting off the attacking Hun.

It is the vehicle of choice of whatever badly dubbed superhero your children watch when you have to be out of the house, and will double as any vehicle/office/planet your children have in mind.

Unless you just get them a cardboard box. Then you're just being cheap and they can spot that a mile away.
