HP Ships Power Cord in Giant Box With Attached Pallet

If you get a package this size, reinforced with a wooden pallet, your first thought is probably that you've accidentally received, say, six laptops, or a fridge, or a mid-sized sedan. But you'd be wrong.


The only thing that came in this monstrous package is a simple power cord that HP inexplicably shipped in a box sturdy enough to ship the entire Canadian army. There's probably a story behind it—I've never in my life seen a package delivered while still strapped to a wooden pallet—but as it stands, we can just bask in the ridiculous juxtaposition of tiny item, giant box.
