Sheep on the turnpike
I've already posted about how the Pennsylvania Turnpike might be the most murderous interstate highway in the history of American highways. Today, my commute, which under normal conditions should take 35 minutes, lasted for 2 hours. The reason? Sheep on the highway. Yes, you heard right, there were sheep running around on the interstate. What the fuck, you say? Well, apparently there was an accident involving one of those big trailers containing pigs and sheep and what not, and what happened was that the upper level of the trailer broke up, falling on all the livestock in the lower level, basically crushing most of them. And then, the livestock in the upper level broke free and ran around on the turnpike. Sad, really. But thats how the turnpike is. Sparing neither men nor livestock.
