QuoteOriginally posted by: AlanTitle says it all (image redacted to prevent trivial googling) ...sorry but I have to say it dose not look like a option collector's item! Or may be a call to eat? strike 5, time to maturity? and in relation to eat it says 'Out', so likely a down (food) and out-the-door option! So clearly a option collector's item after all (despite time to maturity redacted)!

@Collector,Haha!@Ebal,yes! I guess we should consider it solved since (as pointed out by tw) it comes up more or less immediately on Google anyway. But if anybody knew the answer without googling, I am impressed (I didn't). =================================================================================OK, new related brainteaser.What would have made this question much harder to answer by googling?Redacting the whole headline would have still made the answer trivial by using Google's "search by image".So, who can post a minimally redacted image (starting from mine) such that the answer to my original question *cannot* be found by easy googling (by keywords or image).
