Not so obvious...

I have come across couple of new packaging gems I would like to share them with you. I already wrote about fat free vinegar and unlucking phones. This time it is about paper and noodles.

The first is the box of everyday office printing paper... you would think. But no! It is not just an ordinary box of white printing paper. In fact it is "black and white printing paper". What does it mean exactly? Is it white paper or is it black paper or a mix? On closer inspection of the ream of this paper I found no black paper. Even if you assume this is a box of white printing paper, why is it not black and colour printing paper? What is going to happen if you print in colour? Is it going to go on fire?! Blow the office up?! What, what, what...?!

And noodles. Fuqing noodles with characteristic SS symbol on the left hand side.
