You can't deny laughter; when it comes, it plops down in your favorite chair and stays as long as it wants. -Stephen King

Cow Intestine Popsicles = GROSS! Good Lord, all I did while messing with my mP3 player was fall off a treadmill and make a lot of noise!

40 tons of cow intestines closes I-43

A truck driver distracted by a digital music player overturned his semitrailer early this morning on Interstate 43, spilling nearly 40 tons of cow intestines and bones and, according to Sgt. Blaine Spicer of the Sheboygan County Sheriff’s Department.

The driver, Ryan Engle, 25, of Kenosha, was northbound on I-43 about 2:15 a.m. near Orchard Road in the Town of Mosel when the truck veered off the right side of the road as he adjusted an MP3 player, Spicer said. According to the sheriff’s department:Engle entered the shoulder and was unable to regain control as the load shifted and the truck fell onto its right side in the east ditch. About 76,000 pounds of beef byproduct spilled into the ditch and onto the freeway. The right lane of northbound I-43 was closed for two hours as crews cleaned up. Engle, who was cited for inattentive driving, was taken by Orange Cross Ambulance to St. Nicholas Hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Responding to the scene was the sheriff’s department, Wisconsin State Patrol, Howards Grove First Responders and Sheboygan County Highway Department. The semi, which had to be towed from the scene, is owned by Kenosha-based Birchwood Transport. - from HTR without permission. Sue me.

Where the hell is Mosel?

Now what does one do with 38 tons of cow intestines? I'm guessing they're headed for Lambeau Filed, to be the hot dogs and brats for the 2007 Packer season.

Yummy!
