Default upside down budweiwser labels ***with pics***

I bought some beer a little while ago for a BBQ we decided to have at the last moment. I ran down to 7-11 to pick up some beer in a hurry and all I could find was budweiser. (not my favorite)

Long story short, the beer had the label stuck on upside down. PICTURE So that was on the first 10 or so and we thought it was some trick or something, then they started coming out of the pack the right way. What is up with that??

Should I hit ebay and make an incredibly small fortune?? (like $5 or something)

Anybody have this happen before???

Setting the Way Back Machine for 1976, we had a can of Tab that was printed upside down. It happens I guess. Easier though to figure the line workers drinking a Bud and getting the label turned around than workers having any deliterious effects from Tab.

It's not usually the first 10 or so that look upside down to me.

For some reason, I found that amazingly funny. You have earned a '10'.
