    Oh man...how is this going to affect the cost of cheese here in the Bay Area? The ripple effects from this could be awful. :( ;)

    :D I am getting hungry just thinking about this.

    For clean-up, they just need to bring in a bunch of dogs (once the cheese has cooled down) and let them lick the pavement clean.

    Actually now that I think of it, that probably wouldn't be a good idea with all the other burnt truck parts mixed in. the dogs might get sick.

    All joking aside, are any pedestrians going to be affected by this? I can imagine you're not going to be able to wade through a street of melted cheese without wearing a stilton your foot...

    I cantal for sure, but I don't believe so.

    Seriously though, it's on a freeway, so there aren't any pedestrians.

    I pray to St. Albray that no one was hurt (or had a havarti attack).
