But we’re poaching the topic as Washington State Police report a semi-truck crash outside of George, a small town in central Washington, dumping dozens of dozens of eggs onto the road.

In case you missed it:

According to KREM 2 news, the semi rolled over on Interstate 90 near George, Washington (yes, it’s real) on Thursday morning around 6:00 a.m. local time. According to Washington State’s Department of Transportation’s Twitter page, several miles of westbound I-90 were closed Thursday as crews cleaned the eggstremely messy spill from the highway.
