My Favorite News Story of the Day

Apparently some dude in Texas stole $250,000 worth of Skittles. You almost don’t need to add any commentary to a story like that, do you? $250k worth of candy. That’s the value of the 28 pallets of Skittles that were in the truck. That’s a lot of money. I can just hear what people are saying as they read this story.

You know, back when I was a kid, $250k would have bought you a lot more
than 28 pallets of Skittles. You could have gotten 50 pallets of Skittles, plus 10 pallets of Squirrel Nut Zippers, 10 pallets of Sugar Daddys, 15 pallets of candy cigarettes and 10 dozen cases of Moxie to wash ’em down. Candy prices these days…it’s highway robbery! [sic]

The thing that I was wondering about is that there’s a need for a tractor trailer truck with only Skittles on it. Nothing else? Not even a pack of gum or 3000?
