Nice Design "tupperware"

My friend Chris Noessel found this fantastic piece of "tupperware" at a $1 store in San Francisco's Mission District. It's very plain except for the little flower motif and the words "Nice design." Follow the link to the full picture. Chris writes:
NicedesignI'd like to think this was some snarky designer, but the actual design counterindicates. But even if it was a practical joke, how did it get past the fabricators? Did no one in the delivery chain speak English? What directive was given to the designer? Was it simply, "We need a nice design for the product," and the designer a literalist?
