Illinois Highway Closed due to Stuff
Actually, Double Stuff:
Police say a trailer loaded with 14 tons of double-stuffed Oreos has overturned, spilling the cookies still in their plastic sleeves into the median and roadway. Illinois State Police Sgt. Brian Mahoney says the truck’s driver was traveling from Chicago to Morris on Interstate 80 around 4 a.m. Monday when he fell asleep at the wheel and slammed into the median.
Mahoney says no charges have been filed but both lanes of traffic remain closed while authorities remove the cookies.
The only thing better would have been a school bus full of kids following behind him to stop and clean up the cookies with their tongues. That or a milk truck...
