The analogy is slightly closer if you say 'bun' instead of 'box'.
_intended_ to eat it all together, as a single unit. That's why they're
combined together like that.
But even then it's not quite right, because you _could_ separate those
two if you tried. It's more like the horrid icky relish crap that you
try to scape off, but you never manage to remove all of it... :)
