We get e-mails to the various CriticalDance addresses that cover a wide range of products and services (I won't go into details). However, this one, albeit with a weak dance connection, seemed so out of the ordinary and so pleasantly-worded that I thought I would share it with you:

This is a candle can. Yes, I'm puzzled too why there is a prominent banner for Coca-Cola on the side.

Well, the tins could be used for pointe shoes to provide extra protection. Alternatively, put it down to English irony.
