Taste 1/7 of the Rainbow

There’s a lot of great things going on in this article: ‘Hundreds of Thousands’ of Skittles strewn on Dodge County road
1. The fact it happened.

2. The fact Skittles are segregated by color. If there was ever an appropriate time for Jesse Jackson and his Rainbow Coalition to get involved with something – this is kind of obviously it. 

3. This quote, “There’s no little ‘S’ on them, but you can definitely smell, it’s a distinct Skittles smell,” Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt said.

Washington County’s own Sherlock Holmes obviously on the case. (No offense to him and his scent-of-candy knowledge.)

4. That the article ends with this, “It was reported that the Skittles were intended to be feed for cattle, but ended up being for the birds.” 

Wait, what? How is this not THE article. They feed cattle skittles?! Where? Why? I mean good for them, I’m sure their life kinda sucks and they want to taste the rainbow as much as any of us humans, but wow. And more importantly, where can I buy some of that beef?
