Vintage Ad #1,020: The 42 Cent Lunch

Comments left so far on Flickr regarding this economical lunch:

"If I'm going to eat that, I'd like to pay less, please."

"Do you think if we shell out a few more cents they'll actually COOK the egg?!"

"All that prep time AND 15 minutes to cook? How long a lunch break do Canadians get?"

"Salmonella On Toast."

We're happy to hear your comments or accept photos of any attempts to duplicate this cheap lunch.
