Eee bah gum, sss a right mess they’ve go’ themsel’ inter, love.
That’s what they get for calling that stuff Marmite. Sanitarium fo’ lyfe :)
A friend of mine, who has a friend who knows the someone who used to date the lorry driver, told me that the driver is a stooge for the Kraft Corporation.
Pictures or it didn’t happen.
I do hope they send for soldiers to help with the clean-up.
By any chance the driver wasn’t a small accident-prone bear, from Darkest Peru?
Too bad it wasn’t a traffic jelly.
That there is one nasty accident
Wonder exactly how many rounds of bread you’d need to mop up 23 tonnes of Marmite…….probably a couple more than one could ever hope to eat, but I would do my very best!
It stopped the yeastbound traffic
Soldiers have been called in
The lorry is toast
I suppose you could say this stretch of highway has been…*sunglasses* Marred.
Marmite on the highway I know, I know, it’s serious.
And nothing of value was lost.
The lorry, *initially reported* to be carrying Marmite, crashed and spilt its contents onto the carriageway at about 22:15 GMT on Monday
Now that’s what I call a sticky situation.
Alas, just brewer’s yeast — cubic meters of free Marmite will have to remain the stuff of my fantasies. Anyway, I did have a little trouble imagining Marmite spilling.
Oh, the humanity….
We only stop for overturned beer trucks in Toronto.
They would have cleared it up quicker, but resources were thinly spread …
