The Shit Box has changed the face of cardboard furniture—a face we didn’t know it had until recently. Yes, it’s a lightweight cardboard toilet that folds down for easy portability, and can be used (with biodegradable bags) wherever port-a-potties looks particularly toxic. The marketing strategy for the thing—which really is little more than your typical cardboard box, available in bulk for free at almost any liquor store—seems to consist mostly of crap jokes. You’ve got the name of the product, the name of the manufacturer (The Brown Corporation, “a solid company”), the mascot (a Mr. Hanky-esque turd), and the pun-laded descriptions (“also doubles as a handy stool”). Still, the Shit Box probably does beat the Shit Bucket. Via BuzzFeed.
