A tractor-trailer overturned on a highway in Tacoma, Wash., Monday, spilling almost 23 tons of chocolate, ice cream, hot dogs and deli meat.
Workers shoveled the 45,000 pounds of food into dump trucks to be discarded. What a shame.
(The photo at left is not from the scene, but it's the best I could find of melted ice cream on a road.)
We jest only because no major injuries were reported -- just some gnarly traffic tie-ups as workers cleared the sticky scene.
