This Super Long Box Was Very Necessary To Ship A Half Ounce Of Product

It takes a certain amount of talent to be ridiculous, and so we applaud Amazon’s shipping department in this case for doing what it takes to be particularly flabbergasting when it comes to choosing quite a silly box for a very small product.

A reader sent in this evidence of Amazon’s oversized packaging, writing,

“I submit a photo of this two foot box, that delivered my .5 oz of Aveeno. Not even FANCY department store cream, just cheap old Aveeno.”

Even if they were sending the most expensive cream made out of powdered unicorn horn and baby angels’ wings, we’re not so sure wasting cardboard is worth it, as amusing though it may be. Hat’s off to you for going for those extra inches, Amazon!
