    Default Extra Packaging!!

    Recently, I bought a cartridge for my printer. It came in a box mounted on a
    card and wrapped in plastic. When I took it apart, I found that the printer
    cartridge itself was actually quite small, but they made the packaging
    unnecessarily large to make it harder to steal and to make the customer feel
    better about the high price.
    I pointed this out to my wife and mentioned how my weight gain over the
    years of our marriage should have the same effect: It made me seem more
    valuable and also made me harder for other women to steal.
    She's still laughing.
