This Wacky Package dates from 2004, the first year the parody trading-card series was brought back after having been retired in 1991.

Wack Packs, in they years they appear, provide a cultural parallel to the lists of new words added to dictionaries. That same year, the Oxford English Dictionary added “cyberwar,” “cybercrime,” and “infowar.” And that year, the New York Times noted words such as “mash-up” and “podcasting,” as having come to prominence (nytimes.com). I’ve had this sticker on my file cabinet, and am only getting around now to posting it. All things Wacky Packs at wackypackages.org.
