There are places where a refrigerator truck isn't an option. Would you prefer some of their methods?

As awful as that is, people need to see it.

It might save lives if some of these dummies got their heads out of their asses.

Then again, the trucks may obscure the horror.

Think of it as the Trump Circus of Death and Calamity. It will come to your town eventually. How long it stays is up to you...

Our mayor was telling us he was worried because in Spain they had used an ice rink as cold storage for the bodies. He didn't want to have to do that here. But at least we won't ever need trucks because if there's one thing Canada has a lot of, it's ice rinks.

This is like people losing their shait when Mike Pence described the Coronavirus test. Just because someone describes something in negative tones, it doesn't always mean that they're whining and biatching and begging for sympathy. Sometimes you relate something honestly, and that's it.

Really, Fark isn't happy anymore unless every story on the Pol Tab is used as an attack on someone.

Reefer boxes don't have onboard engines.  They're plugged in.

A backhoe and a truckload of quicklime, you mean?  Or a big hole and enough diesel to burn thousands of corpses?

We might actually get there eventually.

Of course they do, at least many of them do. You can tell that one does by the fuel tank just behind the landing legs. They probably aren't running it right now, but if the trailer loses electricity it'll fire right up.

White noise like that actually helps a lot of people sleep. I have an app on my phone that has all kinds of sounds. I prefer one that's like a summer rain storm (rain, soft random rolling thunder, with crickets, etc.). I actually play it at about 3/4 volume.

Without the context of it being a photo credit, it reads like Marc is responsible for the existence of the body.

That's a standard 53-foot refrigerater trailer. It's diesel powered.
Those things can be very loud depending on the location of the surrounding buildings and etc.
Plus, it's a penetrating low frequency sound.
I can't sleep with reefers running nearby.

Florida has alligators, lots and lots of alligators. Morgue trucks might not be necessary there.

Yep, they are as loud and deep as a subwoofer and run itermittently so you can juuust fall asleep before it fires up again.
I researched plug-in versions and they're experimental for now.

Trollopalooza was correct.  I made the comment as if the caption implied that Marc was responsible for the body.  You're not wrong, though; a whole lot of things could use a reboot at this point.

I got used to them especially when I drove a truck with an APU. My problem is trying to sleep around livestock haulers who have delivered but not went for a washout.
