Onions

On February 8th, 2008, on the N3 in Durban (which is, I think, in South Africa) A truck had a blow-out, which caused it to slide in the wet conditions, colliding into a guardrail and overturning. The news report says that a “bakkie” then collided with the truck.

Apparently, a “bakkie” is slang in South Africa for a small pickup truck. It’s also the name of a small bowl to put something in, which would explain the nickname.

Nobody was hurt, but cleanup crews cried for hours. Just kidding. It’s an onion joke.

A few days ago, my mom was at home and suddenly heard a loud noise outside…

A grain truck had overturned in their front yard spilling its load of soy beans. The driver was a little dazed, but not injured. Within minutes, the police and a tow truck were called to the scene. Later, a crop vacuum came by and cleaned up the soy beans.
