Bag the Box

I just finished reading the story about the guy walking around in a box for a week [July 27]. What is artistic about walking around in a box? It seems more like a very desperate plea for attention! A person who hangs signs with his name plastered all over them in his hometown and pays gals to wear shirts with his name on them is either very narcissistic or desperate to be noticed. The only thing I thought when I read this article is...what a FREAK!!!! He needs to get a life! If he was my boyfriend I surely would dump him. Tom Green is funny, and his stunts are amusing, however, the box guy is not amusing. What does living in a box accomplish besides him getting attention? It accomplishes nothing. Ask some homeless people who have had to live in a box.
