Marco Rubio gets back the Ketchup Doritos he paid for

Marco Rubio knew exactly what he was doing when he entered a small corner store on Sunday, he wanted to buy a bag of Ketchup Doritos. The corner store he entered was not random, it was the US test location for new flavours and Rubio was anxious to meet the new chip in the running.

But a few hours after purchasing them - a lifetime in the mind of a true Ketchup Doritos lover - not only had Marco Rubio NOT tried the flavour, he had involved himself in somewhat of a court battle trying to get back the chips he legitimately paid for after he failed to take them with him when he left the store.

Rubio's defence claimed that it was during this visit when he first learned of the flavour's limited time availability (and shortly after, here). He acknowledged that it appeared as though he had forfeited them by leaving them in the store after purchasing to be purchased by someone else however, this was due to the state of disillusionment he was in and that he did not know what he was doing.

So which is it? Does he or does he not know what he is doing?

He later argued that he has the right to the Ketchup Doritos via proof of purchase and stated that he was very careful in keeping the receipt so there can be no sustained allegations of foul play.

Marco Rubio will have his Ketchup Doritos returned to him in the forthcoming days. I am sure he is happy to see this story turn out much like the one with his delegates being returned to him after he suspended his campaign.

So congrats, Rubio, you are two for two, at least on what I have been paying attention to.
