Officials said the truck spilled about 40,000 gallons of paint around 1:30 a.m.

If it's latex paint, 40,000 gallons would weigh over 300,000 pounds. If it's a lacquer based paint, it would be over 240,000 pounds.

That headline is more strained than a junkie's bowels after a 7 day Snickers and heroin binge.

I want to be supportive here but it seems like a broad-reach, borderline run.

I think subby needs to apply some primer before rolling.

Isn't that their tag line?  "Nothing goes with heroin like a Snickers"?

My older brother was a heroin addict.  It's quite an experience having a heroin addict in the family.

Leave Subby alone. Not his fault you don't have an ear for puns.

I actually made this just today for other reasons.

40000 gallons! That's going to cost someone a lot of Monet.

Great album, Van Go... not sure what the Beat Farmers have to do with paint, though....

No problem.  I-77 can certainly handle an incident like this on a holiday weekend.

So maybe it was really 5 trucks...

How does a Pollock paint the freeway?

How much does Wormhole Paint from Dimension Theta weigh? Because if a tanker actually carried that much volime, it would have collapsed the first bridge or overpass it found.

You mean the disappearing cash, broken family ties, jail visits, disappearing for days on end, broken promises, and failing health?

/I, at least, hope that in your case the past tense refers to a kicked habit, not bucket

What. Color. Was. The. Paint.

40,000 gallons of paint spilled and nobody saw it. Was it asphalt gray? Was it concrete beige?

Lazy fecking journalists miss asking the one question that most easily comes to mind when you here the word "paint".

There is a joke that Stephen Fry liked that goes, "I stooped to pick a buttercup. Why people leave them lying around I'll never know."

I didn't get it. So I read it out loud to someone in the hopes of an explanation, and suddenly all was revealed.

In short, when I read, I do not sound out each and every word in my head. Therefore this headline's joke eluded me also, for the same reason.

Does everyone else sound out each word in their head as they read? Am I alone in my weirdness of not doing so?

You're Australian. Everything you say sounds funny. Also you left out the buttocks.
