This chap is going to wonder why his auction is attracting so much attention. :D

If you built Estes kits going into high school, you've probably referred to them by that name, too. I did....... ;)

I wonder if the dude did that on purpose.

That was a good one! Wonder why it isn't auctioned in pairs?

Stepping delicately around any references to phallic imagery, I have to wonder:

Exactly where does he recommend flying this?

Hmmm, Estes DID buy Cox a couple of years back - maybe they're giving their corporate image a makeover, like when Esso became Exxon....

The mind wobbles....:D

. . . for some jokes about thrust curves, total impulse, ejection, recovery, etc.

Real question: is anyone gonna tell this guy about his listing? (or would that take all the fun out of it?)

Anyone want to make a bet that the ebay seller has never seen/flown a model rocket?

You are probably right and I expect we will see quite a few in the future. "What they are doing on Discovery for $1500 you can do now for $9.99. What a bargain!" Always happens, the good people come out and get hit by these jokers.
