Odd MRE on eBay

Post by kman » Tue Mar 25, 2008 9:50 pm

Is it just me or does the MRE in this eBay auction look odd:

It's like the fonts are all wrong:

I haven't seen a sloppy joe bag yet, so it's hard to say. I'll just have to pick up another case and take a look. 8)

What do you think the market would be for "counterfeit" MRE's, kman? I would wager pretty hot, myself.

It would be interesting to buy it, open it, and get all forensic on the contents. :)

OK! OK! It's my fault, I admit it. I don't know what the hell I was thinking.

I'll try not to let it happen again.
