MORRIS, Ill. (AP) -- You'd need a lot of milk to dunk all the
cookies that spilled on an interstate highway in Illinois this
morning.

A trailer loaded with 14 tons of double-stuffed Oreos
overturned, dumping boxes of cookies all over the road and the
median about 50 miles southwest of Chicago.

It shut down the highway and backed up traffic.

Illinois State Police say the truck crashed after the driver
fell asleep at the wheel.

    YUMMY !! Easy clean up for this would have been to turn a bunch of elementary school kids loose and just sit back and watch the cookies disappear. Works at my house all the time. Kids come over and next thing you know, you are restocking the supply almost every other day. Amazing how much sugar a childs body can tolerate. Yeah, I know, fruits would be a better choice, but how many kids would choose an apple over a chocolate double stuffed oreo ?? How many fat folks would turn down a chocolate double stuffed oreo for an apple or tofu bar ?? You got it !! NONE !! So, GO OREOS, in all your chocolate double stuffed goodness, I salute you !!
