For weeks northern Seattleites (and SEAtoday staff) have been plagued by the mystery of the Wallingford red goo. Basically, it’s an otherworldly ball of vivid slime that attracts ants +has continuously reappeared along the neighborhood’s sidewalks without any clear explanation.
However, a vigilant community member now seems to have found solid evidence that the goo is in fact melted Swedish Fish — a possibility we gave a likelihood of 6 out of 10 goo-gles.
But should this really be the answer, it only leaves us with a plethora of more questions:
- Who is leaving these fish in the street?
- What have they done to deserve such a harrowing fate?
- Why buy the tasty snacks repeatedly only to discard them at a later time?
Stay tuned with us as we follow @wallingfordredgoo for more.
