Why do altoids boxes say “UNCLE!” on the inside?

NetherCraft 0

In the boxes there’s a slip of paper that shows the altoids logo and the words UNCLE!

Any ideas on why?

  • Different boxes have different jokes or messages.

    “Uncle!” Is a phrase used to mean “I give up” or “mercy” or “I surrender” that dates back to Ancient Rome: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Say_Uncle

    The joke is that Altoids are so “curiously strong” that you would have to “say uncle” or “tap out” while eating one.

  • I thought it was because yer uncle Filbert worked for the company. Glad you cleared that up for me though.

  • I give up! UNCLE!
