    Wow. Somebody wakes up really early to do this! Those kids are either the envy of the lunchroom, or they get made fun of a lot...

    I`m not sure what frightens me more: The fact I can name well over half of those characters, or the fact that kids eat them. (Or potentially could.)

    And for that, I am grateful, cause I"d be getting my @ss kicked daily.

    My mother used to give me stale bread and tell me it was toast. I was lucky if I had the crust cut off.

    ...mind you, I would have probably had the sh*t kicked out of me if I ever showed up to school with any one of those lunch creations.

    bigsisjune they are lunch boxes. sometimes you see it translated as boxed lunch to.

    An elaborate lunchbox~

    An wiener imitated an octopus & a rabbit shaped apple, etc. are the typical style in the lunchbox. But those are kinda too noisy, I think.

    Once the lid`s on and it`s rattled around for a while, it wont look anything like that.

    My packed lunches were just: sandwiches, chocolate biscuit bar, crisps (chips to you Americans) and maybe a juicebox.

    My dad always made my lunch... and it consisted of luke-warm string cheese, luke warm because it sat next to the bad soup, and occasionally some form of cheap juice...
    :[ He tried, but... I just buy my lunch now... or don`t eat. Our school lunches aren`t much better.

    They`re not really lunchboxes. They`re just lunches. Obviously someone doesn`t know the difference.
    Lunch = food.
    Lunchbox = box that food goes in.

    But pretty impressive.
