I find it hilarious, and furthermore think people should be happy with anything they get for free.

Fuck it, next time whoever did it should just buy themselves a pair of shoes.

Oyster used to be known as poor man's beef.  Archeologists have found massive medieval rubbish tips just filled with oyster shells.

it's kinda salty and because it's tiny eggs they pop in your mouth, which is the big attraction to it, cause the flavour itself, while pretty good, is not mega hyper awesome like, say, bacon.

i have some mild mustard which has whole mustard seeds in it, the popping of those seeds kind of remind me of caviar [not the flavour of course]

If it doesn't have an awesome flavor like bacon does, why would people bother? I mean, if I had to choose between a thousand dollars in bacon, or a thousand dollars in caviar, I'd take the bacon.

BACON OWNS YOUR CAVIAR.  :bacon:

No, Freeky. You don't get it.

Poor and homeless? Unable to become part of the kleptocracy?  Now YOU TOO can enjoy the exorbitance of gourmet bullshit with HOBO POPPERS! This Grade C black caviar comes from prime endangered beluga sturgeon, and it is now available due to generous donation at your local soup kitchen. Act now while supplies last; there are only several thousand sturgeons left! Dine in style, feel like a PRINCESS for a few short minutes munching on some fishy smelling eggs before heading back out into the streets hungry.

Everything is fucked.  :lulz:

I agree with RWHN it is completely fucked.  Yes the donor's heart might have been in the right place, but RWHN is right, that money could have fed 5 times the number of people well. 

Yes, people do deserve their moments of luxury, but when you consider that most who go to the soup kitchens live on the streets, the warm kitchen and hot food are their luxury.

The feeling while reading all of this is rather two-sided. It must be done, from the one point of view and it is rather sad from the second.
