Funny Heritage mailer: Freudian slip or subliminal message?

Got this in the mail today ...
After all of the complaining re Heritage (and some other auctions) bumping up their buyer's fees to 20%, this cover had to make me laugh. Boy, does that "F" and "U" stand out, esp. if you are more than about 5 ft from the cover! Maybe someone should talk to the publications department about the concept of contrast.

    When the buyer fee was 15%, Heritage sent out huge mailings of catalogs that apparently most bidders now decline. Shipping fees were much more in line with reality as well.

    Not sure where all of this is headed......
