If it fits, it ships: the reckoning (29 HQ photos)

Unless you live under a rock, you know the USPS claims that "If it fits, it ships" -aka jam as much shit as you can in a box and they will ship anywhere in the US for one flat rate depending on the size of box you use. We looked at the small print and it said "70 lb max weight limit". Which is A LOT if you think about it. So we sent 10,000 pennies to our sister, Emily who runs theBERRY in Nashville. The box weighed about 60 lbs and the USPS actually came through with their guarantee and delivered the package to Em. She could not lift it off the floor because she is a weak girl.

We included a challenge to the Chivers to send us whatever they could fit into a USPS Flat Rate box. They answered by mailing some random ass, awesome shit. Thanks to everyone who participated. We planned on giving a shout to everyone who mailed us something but our intern, Mac, just loves cleaning up the office and trashed all the boxes. Dick.

We want to try this experiment again because we feel like Geraldo opening Al Capone’s safe except there’s cool shit inside. Whatever you send in, we will take a photo and post on theCHIVE with your name and location. Keep in mind, the potential awesomeness of this experiment relies on your creativity. If you own your own company or work for a cool company and you want to whore out your brand and be a hero at work, send us free stuff. If you send something pointless, like a pen with your real estate company name on it, we will attach it to helium balloon and send it to the Inland Empire.
