Woman Takes on a Candy Quest

NEWS

What kind of shoes to mice wear? That was the joke on Kimberly Lakies’s Laffy Taffy wrapper, but a far more intriguing riddle began to daunt her when she saw that the person who submitted the joke was from Bonne Terre, MO. The only clue to their identity is the name Syd R. Intrigued by the locality of the joke writer, Lakies has taken on the quest to find the mysterious Syd R. “My first thought when I saw the joke was that it was pretty cool and as close as that is I wish I knew who this was so I could give them this piece of candy,” said Lakies. “You don’t see them from local places very often . . . they are always from across the country.” Lakies is using social media to track down Syd R., and while no leads have come up yet, Lakies isn’t giving up. At least one mystery is solved: mice wear ‘squeakers’.
