Can I just say that I’m very sad that the truck accident that caused 14 tons of double-stuffed Oreos to spread across an Illinois Interstate caused such traffic grief…and I sure hope that the truck driver is okay…but, wow, would that be an amazing sight to see!Did drivers get out and scavenge?I keep thinking of all those recipes calling for “coarsely crushed Oreo cookies.” Toppings, mix-ins, layers. Mmmm….(The entire episode reminds me of a similar but far less dramatic story that Julie Q at Mental Tesserae posted in March ’07 involving Girl Scout cookies)

Hey, that’s not far from me! I wonder if they need help cleaning up? You know me. Always ready to serve. 🙂

I remember back when I was a kid, you know, in the 70s (maybe early 80s) and a semi-truck full of Nerf baseballs crashed near our house. Everyone was okay, and my brother and I were esp happy about our new Nerf baseballs that were given to us. Now if a semi-truck with a baby grand piano would wreck (small wreck, nothing major) outside my house, well, that’d be all right too.
llama Momma: Grab some plastic bags and run! Run like the wind, woman!
Stretch Mark Mama: Hm…this could turn into a game of “what stuff would be fun to have accidentally dropped near one’s house and get for free?” Flat screen TV? Wii? Any new furniture would be fine for us…

Where is a milk truck when you need one?
I would have pulled over and filled up my back seat! Just doing my part in the clean-up effort… serving my community.

irony?: police had to clean up the spilled cookies.
but a great idea for a “got milk?” ad…

Your blog was on the wordpress homepage when I signed on this morning. I never click on those featured blogs, I am usually in a hurry to get to my own. Yours drew me in. I just spent half my morning at work reading through your pages. So, officially-Hello.
L.L. Barkat says
You are too funny.
Richard, Murphy and Jessica: Double-stuffed humor here! You made me laugh.
twofish4: Officially welcome! Soooo glad you’re here.
L.L. Barkat: (sheepish grin) Aw, well, thanks.
