A delicious traffic accident

Meltedicecreamshop_2 Did somebody say block party?

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.

*Thanks to our friends at the South Florida MenuPages blog for the tip.

I guess there's not always money in the ice cream truck.
