When a truck carrying about 30 tonnes of cheese flips on a highway, people break out some really grating puns.
On Friday, a B-Double semi-trailer carrying approximately 30 tonnes of as-yet-undetermined cheese rolled and blocked the Hume Highway near Goulburn, Australia, according NSW Police.
Luckily, no one was hurt, and emergency services arrived at the scene south of Breadalbane at 8.10 a.m. AEDT. NSW Police said that work was underway to “remove the cheese and salvage the truck.” Yes, in that order. Priorities.
Because people can’t help themselves, everyone raced to make the worst cheese joke.
NSW Police posted a good’un on Twitter.

If only a wine truck would break down next to the cheese truck and you could make a good day of it.

A truck hauling cheese crashed on the Hume Highway in Australia. Though no one was injured, experts believe it would have been better paired with an Interstate ’95.

Guess we’ll just have to grin and Camembert it.
