Bulls*men

Finally, a news story that doesn’t involve politics or weather; a Greyhound bus carrying canisters of frozen bull semen dropped its load on a freeway in Nashville last week, causing emergency crews to shut down a stretch of the interstate after hearing reports of steaming, ill-smelling canisters on the side of the road.

Tee-hee. Load.

Hazmat crews eventually determined the containers and their cargo were safe. The Greyhound driver returned to pick up his lost cargo. Bull semen. On ice.

A spokesmen for the bus line apparently told a television station that it “wasn’t unusual for one of its buses to carry bull sperm”. I did not know this, and I’m betting a lot of other people didn’t either. It didn’t even know Greyhound regularly carried cargo at all. It does.

“It was no different to us than if a mattress fell off a truck,” said  Tennessee Department of Transportation spokeswoman B.J. Doughty. If this incident teaches us anything, it is people in Tennessee still don’t know where babies come from, because there is a serious difference between semen and a mattress.

That, or she was making a remark about the semen content of mattresses, which is dangerously high, from what I understand.

    Interesting, perhaps the author of this viscid article could ejaculate some seminal ideas on the process by which all this spermatazoa is procured. Currently I only have a flaccid understanding of the topic and I am therefore seeking out a firm explanation.
