|Exotic packing material from Kazakhstan|
We resorted to having Scott use our snow shovel to scoop the styrofoam pieces out of the box and dump them into garbage bags that I was holding open. We filled two entire garbage bags, one of which burst open as soon as I dropped it down the trash chute. Sigh.
Usually, at least in the US, we refer to this particular variety of packing material as "styrofoam peanuts" because of their shape. These didn't seem to be particularly peanut-shaped, so I've decided to call them styrofoam shark teeth. I considered calling them styrofoam boomerangs, but was afraid that would encourage them to come back.
