35W document dump: Who's responsible for today's highway litter?

This is just the beginning of the massive trail of litter.

If you've driven on 35W in the past few hours, you undoubtedly noticed the thousands of white papers strewn along the sides of the highway as it approaches Minneapolis.

At first, it looks like perhaps a protester tossed a box of leaflets off the pedestrian bridge. But then the litter goes on for so  long that it becomes clear that it must have come streaming out of a truck.

We pulled over to the side of the highway to pick up some of the documents and see what they were. It turns out they are some kind of store receipts (from a vendor?). Take a look at these photos and let us know in the comments if you have any theories.

The best way to track this down is to send a copy of the sales order / packing slip to the company that purchased the product (one of the orders reads: Joel Walker   with the phone number and the store Tammarak Village)  do this with the others and you will find out who originated the paperwork!.

Cool story, bro. Though I suspect a 140 character tweet or Facebook status would have been sufficient in this case…
