    14 tons of Oreos spill on IL highway

    MORRIS, Ill. -- Got milk?

    Police say a trailer loaded with 14 tons of double-stuffed Oreos overturned Monday morning, spilling plastic sleeves of cookies into the median and roadway.

    Illinois State Police Sergeant Brian Mahoney says the truck's driver was traveling from Chicago to Morris on I-80 around 4 a.m. Monday when he fell asleep at the wheel and slammed into the median.

    Mahoney says the force of the crash ripped open boxes of the cookies, but their plastic wrappers kept them from covering the ground.

    The crash about 50 miles southwest of Chicago remains under investigation.

    Mahoney says no charges have been filed but both lanes of traffic remain closed while authorities remove the cookies.

          Actually, 14 tons sounds a little light for a tractor trailer load.

            Feel asleep did he?

            Why do I think they will find blue fur in the cab and a big letter C?

                Damn - now we're going to see a sharp increase in the price of Oreos due to lack of supply. If it works for the oil companies....

                      Me, either. And those 100 calorie pack things don't count as REAL oreos.

                        i've never tried those, i just know one thing would lead to another and i'd be on the road to illinois looking for oreos from a truck.

                          Here's some video of it, but it's not very exciting at all. I actually suggest not clicking on it and leaving the mental image you have in your head, which is probably much cooler then the reality.
