Yes, the bus had prematurely ejected it's bull semen cargo. It can happen to anyone, really, so it's not that this is a particularly dumb idea. But the news article I read about it takes the cake and earns the spot as the dumbass idea of the week. Here's the line that did it:
The incident began when the driver of a Greyhound bus carrying the freight alerted the fire department he had lost a part of his load while negotiating the ramp on a highway near Nashville.I can't make this shit up even if I wanted to, people. Fact is stranger, and funnier, than fiction.
