Found: "E"

Found this with a Junkyard Companion today. I was searching the entire day for letters, and found only one. It's about 1/4 the size of my hand, and I'm pretty sure it's some kind of steel. I used a wire wheel brush to shine it up in about 5 minutes.























Does anyone happen to recognize this E? Maybe it's a long shot, but it surely was not alone on a product. I looked pretty hard to try and find its buddies, but with no further luck.
The rounded edges reminds me of Volvo's font. (By the way, does anyone have a font name from the old Volvo ads? This one.)

Oh, and here's an extra hint at how this may have been mounted.. It looks like a small nail hole or something.. It's got some dirt in it.

Why so serious?

Why the F#@& is this Madea Goes to Jail poster so serious? I guess Madea is a "jail bird" if she's going to jail, but this looks more like a Seal project than a comedy starring a huge man dressed as an old lady. The other posters are far more appropriate.






BONUS:
The "Why so serious?" line is from the Dark Knight Batman movie, if anyone was racking their brain to remember. Here's my favorite poster from the Dark Knight promotions. The joker in that movie (Heath Ledger's last & arguably best role) always leaves a Joker card at the scene of his crimes. At one point he even says, "Here's my card..." Check out The Dark Knight if you haven't seen that movie.
