Wake N’ Blog: Pork Rinds Can Be A Truck Driver’s Best Friend…And Worst Enemy

Wake N’ Blog is the Sportress of Blogitude’s non-Home Run Derby-watching morning link dump. Obviously, it had better things to do, like watching paint dry and then tuning in to watch It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia on Comedy Central. A far better way to spend an evening, I have to agree.

• A FedEx truck driver in Washington crashed his rig into a ditch after it jackknifed when he began choking on some spicy pork rinds. No one was seriously injured but the truck driver will be ticketed for “driving with wheels off the roadway,” which to me seems like a weird ticket, but not as weird (and delicious) as eating fried pig skin. Yummy. [Yahoo!/AP]
