Double-stuffed means double-traffic

AP: "14 tons of spilled Oreo cookies snarl Illinois traffic"

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.
"The boxes came out of the trailer and boxes were ripped open," he said.
The crash about 50 miles southwest of Chicago remains under investigation.

If another trailer could spill 14 tons of milk, we'll be all set!

E,

You made my day with the story and the graphic.

A few years ago, I went home to Philly and took the kids to Sesame Place. I think I loved the Cookie Monster show more than the kids.

The lack of MSM coverage of this is sick, but not surprising. After all, because he stuck it to bluey, the MSM loves him. Who cares how many people had to die to steal bluey's cookies?

A totally unfunny comparison to Mugabe, you dope.

Anyone who's so far up their own tuckus that they'd say Mugabe's wrongdoing gets light press coverage because of the media's anti-white racism is hardly in a position to grade [i]anyone[/i] else's brainpower.

what is REALLY REALLY sad is that the Cookie Monster has been remade into the politically correct Veggie Monster. So much for "C" is for "cookie"
