Jumbo Grilled Cheese

A few minutes ago I checked our local newspaper's online version to catch up on the news of the day, and learned that the brakes of a semi carrying 39,000 pounds of cheese caught on fire and caused the vehicle to crash on I-10 this evening on the Florida side of the Florida-Alabama line.

The driver was able to decouple his tractor from the trailer. There were no injuries.

At last report, traffic was blocked and front-end loaders were scooping burned cheese from the surface of the interstate highway.

Ah, Harry Chapin, where are you when we need you most? I know you could have found a song in here somewhere.

  1. I can’t think of anything more wonderful, dear friend. Me, too. Can’t you just imagine a 39,000 pound grilled cheese sandwich bubbling away on the interstate highway? Wish I had seen it!
    p.s. Just caught a big update on the story. It was 5-blend cheese!
