Generally, your traffic-snarling freeway spills are on the ho-hum side, news-wise, but not when the stuff fouling the roadway is great big gobs of greasy grimy beaks-and-feathers-fortified chicken fat hoovered up from the overflow trough at an especially grotacious Louisiana poultry-gutting facility. It seems that a truck operated by the Dixie Hydro-Vac Specialist company sprang a leak on I-20 and proceeded to spew forth the contents of its tank onto the roadway. The stench was described as being "overpowering." Rain turned the cleanup into a sodden nightmare of stinking schmaltz, of course.
