The Box O' Crap has been released from quarantine and is on its way to the great state of Washington on its inaugural journey for the eighth round of the Box O' Crap...

Tracking says Wednesday so I need to keep busy until then...
Hope everyone has a safe and good Memorial day.
Thank you to all who have fought to keep us free, and Thank you to the families of the ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Yes, I think I have found some on the auction site, but I'm not made of money. I have a crusty pair that I might cut and drill... if successful I'll paint them to hide the crustiness...

It showed up late last night. Here it is at light of day:

I am unable to look inside until the golf shop work is finished. Darned customers getting in the way of having fun. Smiles, MH

Wow that box looks terrible.... it was brand new when I shipped it 5 days ago. No surprise though, I had to replace it because the last one was split all down the side.

Really?!?! I even used a brand new box when I sent to you. The liner really helped when we had it.

Well folks,
This has to be the worst reveal in the history of Crapiness. All I can see is plastic wrappers. It appears after inspecting the contents that the top and bottom plexiglass plate will need replaced. I'll create two new plates tomorrow and then carefully repack the crap. I have figured out how to repackage some of the crap so it is in a bit of less disorder. The box seems to be surviving quite well understanding how it is handled at the PO. Smiles, MH

Most Wonderful and Mighty Crapmaster, and those who will be Crapped on this series,
I come before you to explain the tardiness of the Mad Honk in processing and sending along more crap to those who follow me. After receiving the Box 'O Crap and surveying the damage done in transit I have decided to make a few changes. Please let me explain:
I have a small sponsorship of a local racer and his car. Last weekend in the feature of the first race of the season in Brownstown,(IN) my sponsored car was running second in the feature race when the lead car spun out and crashed into the right side panel of my car necessitating repairs of frame parts and the side panel. Tonight I went to the shop and helped with the repairs, and retrieved a section of body panel aluminium and cut and used the brake to bend it into shape. Then we used body panel rivets to put it together (race parts, how appropriate!) . So If you will excuse my excesses, and tardiness this is the new Box 'O Crap:

Box 'O Crap with old plastic liner

Revised Box 'O Crap with new aluminium race car panels

Again new BOC with liner

New BOC with plexi-glass cover
Please excuse my transgressions and tardiness in having made these changes to the exalted Box 'O Crap. Should the Crap Master not be pleased with my transgressions, I shall return the Box 'O Crap to it's prior "Crappy" state and forward along. May our Crap Master please advise as how I, your lowly servant shall proceed. Mad Honk

I dare say the The Honorable League of Crappers will be most pleased that Mad Honk has endowed the Box O'Crap with a bit of Racing Junk.

For those who are interested,
This is what I have been working on for last two night getting ready for carnage again this Saturday night at Brownstown Speedway. It is the donor for the sheets for the BOC liner.

The entire right side was wiped out last Saturday night. Almost ready, just needs one shock and it is back on the track.
I am waiting for the Crapmaster to respond with a yay or nay on the new prophylactic liner for the Box 'O Crap. There will be plenty of room for participants to leave their mark on the liner both inside and outside. I think if the Crapmaster gives the OK I will start by adding a Columbus SLX decal to the box some where, and date it. Smiles, MH

ok, WOW.
I don’t even think using the royal crap-tastic jargon is allowing me to express how impressed I am by this development.
You Sir, are getting a mention in the crappy book of records.

Most Benevolent Crapmaster,
The accolades are wonderful, but may I assume it IS possible to add the prophylactic liner to the Exalted Box 'O Crap for further shipment? And as to the signatures: Is that similarly OK? As always your crappy servant just wanting to comply with the requests of the Most Wonderful and Powerful Crapmaster. As you shall deem, I will comply. Your lowly and crappy servant, MH
