In sorta related news I just discovered a great recipe for home made french fries using peanut oil and Yukon gold potatoes. The secret is to start cold. Just toss the sliced spuds into the oil and turn the heat on. Let them cook for about 15 minutes before you try stirring them or they'll just fall apart, though. After 25 minutes or so just drain, salt and you're done.

TFA: Rescue crews used peanut oil to loosen the tar from his legs. "It was very laborious  leguminous, very time consuming," Francis said. "It's what we do."

Because of the heat and fumes inside the tank, the man was hooked up to a self-contained breathing apparatus during the rescue, he said.

So while he's in the tank under the employers supervision he isn't provided a breathing apparatus?  Yeah.. His lungs will last long..

I like to use a mixture of peanut and canola oils, myself, but I'm one of those weirdoes who thinks canola oil tastes nice. Have you tried Kenji's method of freezing the potatoes before cooking them?

Oh, and while we're on the subject, one of the dopiest Shaw Brothers movies, in which Danny Lee gets super powers by dipping himself in tar:

...and the Tar Monster would've gotten away with it if it hadn't been for those meddling kids.

Hey, if anyone ever offers you a choice of two scrub-out jobs where the only difference is "septic tank" versus "asphalt tank", take the asphalt.

Now, a truly horrible job would be sponge-bathing The World's Fattest Naked Man after he falls into asphalt. (And he does that a lot.)

It puts its legs in the tar or else it gets the peanut butter again!

Let's see...the poor sap lives in Florida. He works in an extremely warm tar tank. He gets stuck in an extremely warm tar tank in Florida. If ever there was one man that wished for a peanut allergy, it is this poor fellow.

I think industrially produced peanut oil doesn't have any of the problematic proteins.

You mean there is no better and/or safer way to fix an asphalt tank than to lower some poor fool into the tank while it's half-full of asphalt and tell him to "keep moving"?

We are so doomed as a species.

The correct term is bitumen. Tar comes from coal, asphalt from petroleum.  Almost nobody uses tar anymore.  The black stuff mixed with aggregate (aka blacktop pavement) nowadays is petroleum-based asphalt.
/Cement + aggregate + water = concrete

Subby, it's a Florida story, you forgot the Florida tag. Now we're gonna have to dip you in tar and peanut oil as punishment. You naughty, naughty, subby.

Better? Sure!

Cheaper? Probably not.

What if he was allergic to peanuts?  Of course, nobody was allergic to peanuts when I was a kid.

I'm gonna guess he was a temp or contract labor, and that loads of safety rules and regs were violated. He could probably get a lawsuit going by contacting the right agencies.
