12 tons of chicken fat sounds like a Denny's meal!  How could the customers tell any difference?

Spills like that are quite commonplace on the Los Angeles freeway system.  Spend any time listening to the traffic reports on your car radio and pretty soon you'll hear about something dropped or spilled on the freeway, in large part because drivers over there can't seem to get the concept of using ropes or bungee cords. Ladders and mattresses are the two most commonly dropped items, but a list of all the things dropped or spilled onto L.A. freeways down through the years would include a kitchen sink, just to make things complete. Wheelbarrows, lettuce, oranges, shoes, garbage, toilets, enough furniture to decorate an entire subdivision, and my personal favorite, a spilled load of Dodger hats, have all tied up the freeways there at one time or another. And when I lived there, I used to joke that the Christmas season doesn't officially begin there until somebody drops the first Christmas tree onto the freeway.
