Clever cartoon compromised by write-o

A cartoon in today's The Daily Barometer shows a man, presumably a naïve college student, flying horizontally alongside a "Skittlz" truck, with his tongue stuck to the image of a rainbow on the side of the truck. The image and its execution are humorous enough but they are unfortunately compromised by a write-o (a handwritten typo) in the caption. The caption reads:

"Bob realized it wasn't such a good idea to taste the rainbow in sub-degree temperatures."

We think the cartoonist meant "sub-freezing," but perhaps he or she was preoccupied with which degree to pursue and Freud slipped through the crack...
