The Great Dorito Harvest of 2006

I found this link at treehugger.com.  Apparently a shipping container (maybe from China?) fell off a ship and dumped a bunch of dorito bags, which eventually ended up on a beach in North Carolina.  Some of the local rednecks got all crazy, started acting like migrant workers, and collected them all.  One even acted high and mighty proclaiming he was “just helping clean up.”  I wonder how often this occurs, and I wonder what other crap gets dumped into the ocean on a regular basis without being reported.  From the pictures, it looks like Nacho Cheese flavor outnumbers the Cool Ranch 2:1.
