How Long Has This Been Going On?

I bought myself one of those plastic bento boxes to carry my lunch at work, and while I was gone for the holiday, it arrived in all its glory: cute little three-layered box with dragonflies in the corner, cute little matching chopsticks, a carrying bag and an elastic strap to hold the tiers together.

And then I noticed this was on everything…even the box lid:

That’s right: it says “LUBE SHEEP.” Who knew dragonflies were like that?

    Could it possibly be referring to lanolin? Some people are allergic to it, so it could be an allergy warning. Other than that, I can think of no legitimate, non-sexual reason to lube sheep.

    It's on the little cloth bag's tag as well; I sort of wonder if it's a literal transcription of what the company's name sounds like in English. An unfortunate coincidence, if so… 🙂

    I got mine on eBay–if you do a search for "dragonfly bento box," you'll get to all the listings. Bear in mind that it is probably smaller than you think it is–I usually take a half-sandwich to work, and that fits right in the upper compartment. If you eat a lot of "real food" like pasta or salads for lunch, however, it would likely work fine.
