Unhappy Boxes of Poop?

Rumor has it...on the third level for the Doom 3 alpha...there are some boxes right before the final door ( where the creature comes out of the floor )....

These boxes have some writing on the side of them.....very easy to read....they say "POOP"...

I guess some developer was really bored one day and just needed a temp "filler" for a name...

In the final game you will be able to pick up the box, open it, take out the poop and throw it at the zombies. It distracts them as they like to eat it.

Not everyone has seen the monster screens.......plus, this is an actual image from actual gameplay with FPS showing...


As far as the links are concerned, Volt already made it clear that links were fine so long as there was no content on the site showing where to get the demo or any other information. In this case, the link leads only to a picture so it is fine...
