TECUMSEH, ONT. — That’s more than two scoops of raisins.
Provincial police say Manning Road at County Road 22 in Tecumseh was
closed for most of the day due to a raisin spill.
Officers say a truck turning onto Manning Road overturned early this
morning and dumped 32,000 kilograms of raisins.
Police say the road and the ditch were covered in raisins.
But the mess was cleaned up by late afternoon and the truck removed.
Tecumseh is just east of Windsor in southwestern Ontario.
When I lived in Texas a truck with a huge tank full of live catfish
turned over on the interstate nearby. You should have seen those ol'
boys. They were picking up those catfish and throwing them in the
back of their pickups or in the trunk of their cars. Better than
watching mud wrestling.

There is a large catfish processing plant some 35 miles south of here
they store ground fish guts, bones, skins and heads in tanker trucks.
When the trucks are full they are delivered to feed mills in Tuscaloosa,
where it is processed into fish feed and fertilizer.
I arrived on the scene of an overturned gut truck on hwy 69 not long after
the wreck, I was already too far along to back out before I realized what
I was driving in. The smell was incomprehensible, the kind of smell that
gets lodged in your clothes, that you can taste, feel and see, the car was
tainted for weeks, I would have happily pissed of a colony of polecats to
have been able to avoid it.
When the stench hit me I instantly began retching and tromped the gas to
the floor, I ran the first red light going at least 90mph and it is anyone
guess how fast I was going through the rest until I was free of the
odiferous hell on Earth.All the while my wife is screaming that I'm going
to kill us, and all I can think is that it would be over.
So happens I am on my way to my brothers wedding, upon arriving at the
churh a guy ask me if I have a dead body in the trunk, upon entering the
churh and taking my place as best man, my brother looks around at me and
said "Damn man, you could have bathed." Sigh, another irreplacible
That's what they call a minnow in this part of the world. :)
Catfish over a hundred pounds are not unheard of, and I saw 300 pound
catfish on a daily basis in Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela (we stunned/killed
them with explosives during seismic exploration in the lake ... the
government had a boat that followed us and picked them up, ostensibly to
"feed the orphans".
