I now pronounce you box and wife, you may recycle the bride

Box Wars is an annual tradition in Dolores Park during which a bunch of folks make armor and weapons out of cardboard and proceed beat each other up in the name of recycling awareness (I think).

Good for them, but we gotta know: was the ring made of cardboard? Because, you know, papercuts.

      I think you’ve vastly expanded the category of “hipster” when you start including chubby guys in baggy jeans, overly long t-shirts and cardboard armor. I can’t see from here, but I’m predicting a goatee is involved.
