7 tons of hot dog filler catapulted all over I-70 after an 18-wheeler’s brakes became completely inoperable in Western Pennsylvania
A truck hauling seven tons of hot dog filler came to a sudden stop out near Pittsburgh last week, catapulting pink ooze all over the interstate highway.
According to a report from the Miami Herald, the 18-wheeler was traveling along I-70 “at a high rate speed” when the driver lost control and swerved off the road. The big rig was then “impaled by several trees” and caused the cargo trailer carrying pink hot dog filler to “catapult onto the roadway.”
After further investigation, the brakes on the big rig were “completely inoperable” causing the crash.
Quick side note: Why is the Miami Herald on the hot dog filler beat in Pennsylvania while state news organizations are in a media blackout? Just something to think about.
I’m sure everyone knows this already, but that pink slime is essential in making hot dogs. It’s honestly disgusting how they make hot dogs. Here’s a quick lesson. Hot dogs are a mixture of leftover beef trimmings churned and treated into that pink paste substance.
Don’t worry, federal agencies regulate that nonsense to make sure it’s safe to eat but when you really stop and read that, it will make your stomach turn.
Not that I care, I am a big hot dog guy, especially at a Phillies game. Luckily for fans heading to Citizens Bank Park this summer, friend of TLL, Kyle Pagan of Crossing Broad, got in contact with local officials to get more Dollar Dog Nights on the event schedule.
No word on how this hot dog spill will influence future Dollar Dog Nights. Pagan appears to believe this was an inside job by John Middleton to stop additional events at Citizens Bank Park and if you know anything about myself and TLL, we are always on board with a good conspiracy theory so we will certainly take that into consideration.
I’m not sure what’s going on out in Western/Central Pennsylvania on these highways but it’s definitely something to keep an eye on. The last time we wrote about a highway crash, it involved a truck full of monkeys on their way to some lab for testing. Next thing you know, we have a monkeypox issue spreading around the globe.
I’m sure that’s just a small coincidence, right?
