The text:

Zakk Present Boxer Brief, men’s underwear (sort of) Low rise forest green [which looks really black in the photo] stretch velvet “Present” short boxer brief with red bow detail. What a great package! Perfect gift idea for men under $30.00

[Addendum January 15th: A bonus in the text is the attachment ambiguity in

Perfect gift idea for men under $30

This possibility has led to some banter on Facebook, along the lines of “I’m easy, but I’m not that cheap”.]
