The Burning Question for Our Time

Here's one of the previously mentioned DVD purchases, 'Bubba Ho-Tep':

Bubba Ho-Tep DVD

It raises a... nay, the burning question for our time:

What does one do when the DVD comes in a cardboard slipcase that completely duplicates the protective DVD case, thus rendering it redundant? Does one discard it, or does one seek to preserve the holistic essence of the thing?

Monetary considerations do not apply, since the potential collector's value (even if such a thing exists for a mass-produced DVD) is negated due to the opening of the package.

Truly, a vexing problem.

Pretty simple. You just use the cover as protection against the inevitable scratches, dust, and shit that covers DVD cases. When you need to show it off, take off the cardboard slipcase. Problem solved.
