Ladies and gentlemen, one of the major wrongs of the 2010s is about to be made right.
In 2013, the makers of Skittles candy decided to change the flavor of their green pieces from lime to apple. This was, of course, a horrible decision. Lime was the best flavor in the entire bag; on the other hand, the only thing that should be apple-flavored are, well, apples.
Food & Wine reported good news yesterday. Skittles’ makers have realized they made a mistake, and over the next few months, green Skittles will return to lime flavor. Hallelujiah! There is justice in the world after all.

It’s National Drink Beer Day. I thought we just had that a few weeks ago, but it’s perfectly fine to have another one. Reminds me, I have a beef with whoever distributes PBR in this town… get the 16-ounce cans back in stock!!!

Enjoy prison, R. Kelly. The artist/producer faces 10 years to life after being convicted of a number of sex crimes involving minors.
Well, I’m in a weird spot… due to the way my monthly minimum payment is structured, it doesn’t make sense for me to publish anything professionally until Friday, the first day of next month. So, OF COURSE, on the day I don’t need to write anything, I come up with FIVE kick-ass article ideas. Isn’t it funny how the mind works?
I’ll see how many more ideas I can come up with by noon, then go celebrate the national holiday. Back tomorrow with more news.
