Oh No!

  • Some 350 cases of liquor were spilled on the North-South Tollway (I-355) in the northwest suburbs Wednesday morning when a semi and a box truck collided.

    The two drivers suffered only minor injuries in the crash but the mess took about 90 minutes to clean up, according to Illinois State Police.

    About 6:50 a.m., a semi crashed into a box truck in the southbound lanes of I-355 near I-290, according to ISP Tollway District Master Sgt. Tim Zych. The accident happened in a construction zone.

    The box truck rolled on its side, spilling its load of about 350 cases of liquor, Zych said. The contents were a "mixed load of boxes of hard liquor," he said.
We were wondering why our local watering hole doubled the prices of the shots and the tropical drinks with the umbrellas in them. This also explains the weeping heard behind the Watch Commander's closed door today.

I hope it wasn't good liquor; much rather have it be the swill to which ghetto-rats add a packet of Lemonade Kool-Aid.

Port Wine, I believe it's called.

Compliments a bag of Cracklin' doused with Louisiana Hot Sauce better than A $70 bottle of Merlot compliments a well-marbled ribeye.

I just feel bad for any motorist that gets stopped for suspected DUI within a 3 mile radius of this spill before the next torrential rainfall...

Did anyone else notice that during WGN's Morning News show's coverage of this from SkyCam 9, the staties seemed to have "rescued" dozens of bottles of the good stuff and carefully placed them on the concrete divider???

Classic!!!! I'd done the same thing, for the record.

The jocular wit you create and the laughter you provoke are always worth the visit to SCC!

Yer right, it is white port with
your favorite flavor of kool-aid
poured in and shaken, not stirred.
But don't over indulge in it,
it might not stay down.

speaking of bosses, once upon a time their was always a bottle of bourbon in the bottom drawer of the watch commander's desk.... important things were always decided over a couple of fingers of good whiskey or scotch.... always neat, never dirty.....

What about Mr Jack Daniels? Johnny Walker, Jose Cuervo or my old friend Jim Beam?
