|CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A portion of Interstate 77 will be shut down for hours early Friday morning after a tractor-trailer crashed, spilling thousands of potatoes across the highway.
This news story made me very sad as I am a huge fan of semi-tractor trailers loaded with potatoes. But when life gives you lemons, just make twice-baked mashed potatoes. Or compose a very bad limerick.
A truck driver to sleep had forgotten
hauling potatoes on I-77 near Wilkinson
crashed into the guard rail
causing engine to sail
but 25 tons of au gratin
