Lotus Nutter recently snapped this rainbow atop the local Byron Shire Council chambers in Mullumbimby. The Echo drudges were keen to find out what you thought the best caption they came up with was? Or better yet post your caption in the comments section below!

Drudge 1:

The Byron Shire Council took the recent Christmas edition front page of The Echo, depicting unicorns and rainbows, a little too seriously and began projecting rainbows from the top of the main council chambers in Mullumbimby – affectionately known to locals as the Tardis – in an attempt to cheer up the locals after the recent 33.5 per cent rate rise.

Drudge 2:

The old Irish legend is that there is a pot of gold at the end of every rainbow and Byron Council could only dream of that being the case – though we do on occasion wonder if the entire organisation is being run by a bunch of Leprechauns.

Drudge 3:

A keen eyed reader spotted this rainbow beaming into the chambers at Mullumbimby – Council can only hope that the preverbal pot of gold will also fall into their laps!

Drudge 4:

Byron Council chambers have recently been caught emitting EMEs in the form of rainbows.
