This round, flat label can rotate on its fastener like a wheel or inside a plastic disc like the movable eye of a stuffed animal. It is weighted so one side is always down. It is printed with a downward pointing arrow and the text “this side up” upside down.

A useful label for crates or boxes with contents that should be shifted and agitated during shipment.

       Some parcels might turn up with a huge nail pinning the label in the correct direction.

       should be agitated? cornflakes?

       You could go into business with the company that makes the labels in the attached link. It would broaden the market share because either you want your crates agitated or not, right?

       Crates of ready to serve martinis.

       Who's read Pratchett's "Thief of Time?" This reminded me the confusion amongst some certain hyper-rational entities encountering paradoxical signs, such as   

       KEEP LEFT

       and   

       DO NOT FEED THE ELEPHANT

       Labels = shirts. Oh, you mean _box_ labels !!   

       HaHAAhaha. However, would be great on a shirt, too, unless someone would follow me home and steal my washing.

       Nice to see you back, [FJ]. Only just noticed.   

       //KEEP LEFT ==> //
Walk backwards.

       Check those dates again, [moom]. It caught me off-guard for a moment, too. I do miss his input around here.

       Damn. What year is this again?

       I got excited there for a second. Now, somewhat less excited.

       When I first saw the title, I wondered what the heck you were on.   

       Now I get it! Croissant just for that...   

       Anything that confuses the masses is worthy of implementation.
