    20-Ton Mayonnaise Spill

    [QUOTE]U.S.
    20-Ton Mayonnaise Spill Shuts Down Part of Missouri Interstate

    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A stretch of Interstate 44 in Springfield, Mo., was closed for several hours over the weekend when a tractor-trailer crashed, spilling 20 tons of mayonnaise onto the road, the Kansas City Star reported Sunday.

    Police closed the eastbound lanes of the section of Interstate while crews worked to clean up the 40,000 lbs of mayonnaise that spilled out Saturday after the driver of the tractor-trailer lost control and drove into the median.

    Lt. Scott Leven of the Springfield Police Department said walking on the spilled mayonnaise was like walking on ice, but no injuries were reported.[/QUOTE]

    lol. Mayo.

    There is more to this story that what they are telling us. This was obviously a failed hi-jacking from the bacon festival attendees.

    Weird. Just walked near the site of the Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919 yesterday.

    Some food will kill you.

    Wait a minute...

    I thought Molasses was slow.

    Did this disaster occur over a period of days or weeks?

    Why didn't the people just get out of the way?

    People actually drowned. In beer.

    I've come close, but thanks to my hearty midwestern disposition I was able to dispense with the enemy....
