Can anything technically be a bag?

There’s something that really, REALLY gets me heated. Bags.

Can anything be a bag???

Because take for instance a lunch box. You walk around with a lunch box, it holds food and stuff, it’s metal and not flexible; it’s a lunch box. 

But what if I put a strap on it and wear it over my shoulder or on my back or whatever. Is it a bag then?

This all occurred when I was walking with my girlfriend in Primark or something and we walked past the tub shown in the image, and I said that it’s not a bag, she disagreed. 

Like in the first two image.

They are tubs in my eyes, but not to others. And I accept it but I can’t see it as a bag and it annoys me. 

What if I got a bottle and put a strap on it, is it a bag? 

What about if I get a cupboard from my wall and put a strap on it, is it a bag?

What if I get my tv and smash it open and put a strap on it and walk around with it, is it a bag?

By definition, a bag is flexible, but these aren’t flexible because they open with hinges. A bag is wobbly and stuff to me.

Idk. 

Wanna know what others think, it’s a fun topic to talk about at a dinner table IF YOURE CLOSE DONT GET ANGY.

    A bag can be considered a handbag or a bag like a trash bag or a rucksack or anything large to carry something. The picture shown looks more like a purse than a bag. It's hardly worth arguing the point. If your lunchpail has straps in it, it's still a lunchpail. There are strapless handbags or purses with straps but they are not considered bags. This subject is closed until further notice...

    Source(s): A bag or not a bag...that is the question?

    The thing in the image you posted could be considered a bag. There are hard purses that have straps. You are asking the  definition of a "bag", for fashion purposes.

    If so, the YES. But your TV doesn't contain anything, so not a bag,  b y any definition

      How could a tv hold something and why would you wanna put straps on it to tote it somewhere anyway?

    Many words in English have multiple meanings. You are referring to the use of 'bag" as a kind of slangy term for a handbag or purse. The term "handbag" comes from a time when they were made of cloth and were softsided. The term "bag" has remained in the language. Another meaning for "bag" is a soft-sided receptacle to carry things in.

    I believe if you put a strap on it then anything can be classed as a bag.
