    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.

  6. 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

  9. 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!

    Soldiers have been called in
    The lorry is toast
    etc

    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.

  14. DeepNorth says:

    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.

    Yorkshire pudding…

    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….

  19. We only stop for overturned beer trucks in Toronto.

    They would have cleared it up quicker, but resources were thinly spread …
