I don't know why, but \leavevmode helps:

\input knuth

\framed {One}

\leavevmode\framed {Two}

These items are not called floats.  Floats are objects like tables or
figures, which are not part of the main text, don't have a fixed
position, and are placed automatically.  Additionally, they are often
numbered and have some title (like "Figure 1:  A sample picture.")
