What's this about old fruitcakes?

This is just too funny: 70 year old fruitcake made by the Cincinnati-based Kroger supermarket chain in 1941 is sold at auction online today for $525.  This begs the inevitable question: is it still edible?

As Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky-based WCPO-TV reports, the proceeds from the auction will go to charity.  No word on whom the buyer, an Arizona man, will re-gift it to next.
