    I bought Omaha Steaks once and they've been sending me email ever since.  Can anyone see what's wrong with this picture?

    The art director and photographer are probably vegetarians. Hilarious. They probably thought it looked more photographically interesting that way.

    The grill "magic marker" lines on the steak are off.

    Have no idea. The cauliflower stuffed potatoes (?) give me some ideas though.

    The cut pieces of steak didn't come from the piece remaining. They are larger/different shape?

    If that is the way they cut their steaks, it is a wonder that they are still in business!!!  Brings a whole new meaning to the term "butcher" /img/vbsmilies/smilies/bounce.gif

    I know about " cheese strings", this picture depucts steak strings--the meat was sliced with the grain. A.k.a stringy steak...

    Steak wasn't even cooked! Outside painted with something brown and fake grill lines drawn on top!

    **shrugs** I don't even think it's real. Wasting $$$ food for a photo shoot isn't practical. 

    I'd wager if you searched hard and long enough, you'd find that very same plastic

    steak pictured in another advertisement, possibly not even with the same company.

    With an entirely different set of sides inserted, of course.

    Lol. I was kind of thinking it looked like a stock photo shopped photo.
