i think its a pretty good deal 23 bucks per meal is not that bad. IF YOUR EATING AT RUTHS CHRIS STEAKHOUSE!!!! what a rip off.

Did anybody notice the dates or codes on that case? Seems to me that the photos might be photoshopped off ebay or elsewhere? Just a hunch, ya know.

I think that you are onto something.

Two of the pics came from MREInfo; http://www.mreinfo.com/images/mre_case_side.jpg and http://www.mreinfo.com/images/menu-c/mr ... ara-sm.jpg

The other two are from here; www.taxson.net/archives/2004_09.html

On the other hand, you must remember that in Levittown MREs are haute cuisine.

I could see if these were for sale in another country that doesn't have MRE's. But in the US, this is an outrage. If you look at the page before on the link to craigslist, there selling singles for 5 bucks. This smart ass needs to do research before posting items for sale. He should even say there not his pictures.

Many years ago I knew a guy who would randomly walk up to pretty women and say, "Hi, do you want to fuck?"

We all thought that he was pretty much of an idiot...
Until one girl said "Yes!"

As the advertisement on TV says, "When is a diet pill worth $ 153.00?" Answer: as long as there are people stupid enough to pay it.
