Read and heed.  I knew Wallyworld was selling differently-branded knockoffs (which I would've gone for had I known about them) but now you can't even trust the brand name on the item.

    I find it amusing when they can do a perfect knock off, but then misspell something.  Those yeti fakes in the pic look pretty legit.

    I’d buy a SETI cooler.

    What do you store in that? ET parts?

    I think you put Schrödinger’s cat in it and hope that nobody ever opens it.

    There are worse things to misspell:

    Saw a billboard once that said the store was "Open to the Pubic". They left it there for months.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Some are really bad spellers they put RTIC on their Yeti knockoffs. 
  • I could be wrong, but I seem to recall having seen warnings about this on YETI’s site (or maybe RTIC’s?).

    Many “YETI” items on eBay shipping from China.
