The 20th matchbox. Anyone who uses a lot of matchboxes will know that it is vital to number every single one. The 20th matchbox, though the same as all the others, is still a matchbox worth having it's own definition on the urban dictionary. Contrary to popular beleif there is absolutely no relation between the phrase matchbox 20 and the recording artists Rob Thomas, Kyle Cook and others.
