Blood on the Highway

Driving home from supper the other day with my brother-in-law, my lovely and vivacious wife and I experienced the worst traffic-jam we had ever witnessed. Coming from a larger metropolitan area, we had seen our fair share of snarls, but this one was the worst.

Of course, my brother-in-law, originally from the gridlocked, urine-drenched gutters of New Jersey scoffed at our amazement.

'You CALL this TRAFFIC!'

It wasn’t until the next day that we learned the cause of our traffic woes: It seems that a truck carrying pig parts lost its cover while driving on the interstate, losing some of its cargo before pulling over. The pig-parts on the highway tied up traffic for hours. (There’s a sentence I never thought I’d type.)

Nanook thinks it was the most delicious traffic accident he had ever been in!



  1. i just made two discoveries… one amazing, one devastating. i’ll cover the devastation first:

    i was intrigued to note the link “ABOUT NANOOK” on the right sidebar, between the two pics of groucho lee. sadly, this appears to be not a link but a heading for the paragraph in the frame below it. how unfortunate. 😦

    but, gladly, clicking on “Nanook of the South” at the top of the page takes one to a page where your blog posts are displayed in a chronological order, for those times when i’m not able to read every post as it’s posted. yay! 😀

  2. You missed the time about a year ago when an actual hog truck crashed on the highway, letting loose hogs that ran wild on the highways…leading to the worst traffic I had ever seen outside of Jersey.
