  • a blow-molded container comprising a longitudinal axis, said blow-molded container further comprising a closed bottom, an open top, and a body having an enclosed perimeter between said bottom and said top;

    wherein said bottom, top, and body together define an interior volume wherein said body has at least one region of deflection disposed thereon, and wherein said region of deflection allows flexion and thereby has less resistance to flexing than the body of said container proximate to said region of deflection;

    an outwardly facing annular protuberance disposed upon said body, said annular protuberance being continuously disposed around said perimeter of said body proximate to said top wherein said protuberance forms a surface external to said body, said surface being substantially perpendicular to said longitudinal axis; and
