Personally, I think they are mocking my personal hygiene since it’s pretty much the same what I got in my last 2 BofCs.
In all seriousness, the thing is that in yonder years a BofC always contained stuff that was either odd, semi-broken, expensive or a combination thereof. In any case, it was always worth way more than the $8 you spent. There’s a reason why the BofC is (was) so incredibly popular. Because you always felt incredibly lucky you were able to score cool things for a ridiculously low price. Nowadays, most people barely get their money worth and it looks like instead of filling the boxes with left-overs from their wharehouse, they made a trip to the dollar store.
The BofC is like senior sex. It’s still fun - just not as much fun as it used to be.
