Brain teaser 2

There are eight oranges in a box. How can you divide them between eight people so that each person gets one orange, and one orange is still left in the box?
The oranges must not be peeled or cut.

Hi Marcelo,
The guy who divides the oranges is the same guy who holds the box, so 7 guys each get one orange and the 8th one has the box with his orange inside. This is calculated with a poet's imagination and not a math's wizzard genius brain :)
