The Plastic Trinity

Recently, I was getting out a sandwich bag while making my lunch in the morning. What I found in the box was something unexpected, something wild, something definitely out of the ordinary!

No camera tricks! No superglue! You are seeing these bags in the same state that I pulled them from the box. Now, I understand that sometimes things go wrong at the plant, and two bags get fused together. No big deal. Whatever. But this is WAY different! I'm talking about three bags all sharing a common's outrageous! I was thinking about selling them on Ebay to some freak collector, but decided instead to split them up and sell them individually. I've always heard that rare stuff is more valuable this way.

Something else ocurred to me while I was looking at these pictures...why is my skin purple?!?! I'm like a freak of nature or something! Maybe I should sell myself on Ebay. Bidding starts at US $1.00!!
