That certainly got a rise out of the company.

I donut understand that headline.

Dough!!!

Au! the pain.

This crusty old sheriff might just be a little flaky.

When yeast intentions go awrye.

I read that as pasty brouhaha, and got confused when I wondered what kneading had to do with a strip club.

At best, it was under-the-table rural folk being rural folk.

But a LEO really ought to know better and know that a damn truck driver really does not have the authority to release the merchandise being hauled-even if headed for disposal. That's just begging for trouble.

Not the brightest thing to do, but far from as big of a deal as they're making it out to be.
I'm going to go with the 'political opponent stirring the pot' rather than 'OMG thieving criminal Sheriff'.

/Worked a semi wreck with 30k lbs of ham in a reefer trailer in Iowa once
//Was blocking the entire interstate, had to unload by hand since it was on its side
///Don't tell the Register, but some of the ham went to the people who helped unload, with permission of the shipper

Proves that a cop will do anything to get a donut.

And the shipper probably had to reimburse the owner for those hams.

I shot the sheriff
but I did not eat the Krispy Kreme

Probably still cheaper than hiring licensed, bonded wreck unloaders.

/We all know it was claimed as an insured loss, along with the smashed hams
//Maybe the whole load had to be written off and put in a landfill
///Probably a law against selling food that had been in a shipping wreck

Actually, the owner was the shipper (IBP). Can't remember if the trucker was IBP or a contract carrier (it's been well over 20 years ago), but IBP was the entity that said go ahead, take some of 'em if you want (they had a company rep at the site).

The wreck unloaders were volunteer firefighters for the most part.

IBP can give away the hams to anyone they want since they own them.  This sheriff and the driver didn't represent the owner.  It changes things just a bit.

Well, if they want to be that way, with their now unsellable wrecked hams, they can pay the unloaders with real money, for their work. Is that better?
