Have to say, the CQQ (Crap Quality Quotient) index has clearly risen since the last time it dented my doorstep!

Who put the glass of scotch in the Box O' Crap?? Maybe that will entice more C&V folks to join in the craptastic fun. Smiles, MH

Thats why I said I would have been more afraid or they were red flames with chalk marks! Perhaps Rusty’s white lights will exorcise the box of poopy before it arrives at my abode...

I got a mini- Box O' Crap today from Bianchigirll! Some pretty good stuff in the Mini- BOC:

The reveal

Some of the stash inside

Valuable cable hanger and top hat to fit it as well
Kind of a neat surprise on a 27* day and a reason to go to the shop and do some bike work. Smiles, MH

Looks like it’s stuck in Beavertown. I’m headed that way this afternoon. I think it’s going to South Carolina before it’s back to me, though.

Thanks for posting! Note that the Rule 15 states "PM the next person in line (don't ask me!) for a ship to address. Don't post it here, respect everyone's privacy."

No rule about posting here that next in line has been contacted, but it's good practice just so the Crapmaster can remain omniscient.

Gray area….to be determined by the Crapmaster.

I just realized I had the box for 14 days so I’ll be banned ad infinitum. ☹️

Jdawg,
At this time after consultation with my local League of American Bicyclists representative; It has been declared a possibility because you are promoting the activity of bicycling and self reliance for travel of the riding community. So it shall be allowed provided that you replace the removed items with Crap of equal or greater value than what was removed. And furthermore that pictures of the bikes with BOC parts on them identified.
RustyJames,
Not banishment but a requirement to say three 'Hail the " Box O' Crap"s!' and two 'Tullios' amidst the five candles used in the reception ceremony of the exalted "Box O' Crap".
Crapmaster MadHonk (AKA "Your Honknificence")
