Dangerously Cheesy Tourist Attractions

Awriiiiight: A giant Cheeto has been discovered by one of our brave but slightly crazed servicemen. The size of a small lemon, it was found in a naturally-occurring vein of Cheetos, which spontaneously form in plastic bags in supermarkets and other retail outlets.

After trying to sell it on Ebay (of course), he has donated it to a small town in Iowa, for no adequately-explained reason. They will put it to good use:

They plan to shellac it, lay it on plush velvet and put it under Plexiglas.

"This giant Chee-to could be a boon to our local economy," said Tom Straub, owner of Algona's Sister Sarah's Bar.

I predict that within fifty years Algona, Iowa, will boast a giant---and I mean giant---fiberglass Cheeto.

I love Cheetos---not those nasty fried ones, but the baked kind. When I got back from Australia there was a long list of foods I was eager to taste again, and Cheetos were near the top of the list.

If I had encountered the giant Cheeto, I probably would've exclaimed over it, maybe photographed it, and then eaten it, because---hey, what else are you going to do with a Cheeto? It's not like you could sell it on Ebay or anything. Cheez.
