In Which I Write REI

As a person who loves pretending to be a wilderness enthusiast, I'm a big fan of REI. But their stuff is so damn expensive. I knew I would have no shot at scoring anything substantive from them, so I set the absurdity level to chimichanga and went for broke.

In case you were wondering, the bag in question.

A few weeks later I see the following package on my doorstep. Could it be??

Inside is the following letter.

I reads:

The contents of the package:

 I commend you, REI, for the solid sense of humor. Major kudos to whoever got these.

 Gift card! What-uppppp.

Gift card! What-uppppp.

Arigato, REI. By the way, Mr. Peanuts says "Hrrrrrnnnnnngggggggggg!!!" which means "Thank you very much," or "FEED ME NOW!", depending on the context.
