Chocolate Lorry Explodes in Cheshire A556 Fire

RIP to the noble chocolate lorry, for it was full of chocolate

A great loss to the world, as an entire lorry full of chocolate exploded overnight in Cheshire, according to the Daily Post, with the driver thankfully unhurt. Bar upon bar melting into charred, cocoa ooze. The conflict between the sweet smell and the conflagration.

The sweet smell mingling with burning plastic and lorry parts and quickly becoming gross. Oh, and the inevitable puns:

Up to their old twix again…. twirly to say the cause? Did he drifter across the lanes?

Had someone let the aero out of his tyres? What dime will it reopen?

The lorry enters a great pantheon of food truck spills, leaks, and crashes, and in this case, it’s fortunate that its cause was not sleep deprivation or overwork, a common phenomenon in large-scale food delivery. The affected road has now reopened.

And in other news…

If life gives you lemons, remember that they are the result of humans crossbreeding bitter oranges with citrons and do not occur naturally.

Therefore life never gave you any lemons to begin with; we made them up.
