The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions a layer of mashed potato, baked for 45 minutes at 190° *

Life continues to imitate a 'Two Ronnies' skit:
Police are asking motorists to keep their eyes peeled.

Two victims of potato dumping

In fact "State Highway 1 blocked by spudspill" is a recurring event, which we incline to blame on the large deposits of Narrativium underlying New Zealand's North Island (either that, or on Another Kiwi drinking a third pint of Trotsky Headsplitter Bitter and twiddling with the settings of the Morphogenic Field Flux Intensifier). This time, the spillage was close to the Southward Classic Car Museum; but seven years ago... happened in the neighbourhood of the vintage car wreckers, Horopito Motors.

Perhaps the reality-studio scriptwriters are working up to a joke about "bangers and mash".

* If these accounts of sub-optimal choices of paving material are true, we must deduce that there are no roading engineers in Hell, which I for one find it hard to believe.

Driver was quoted at the scene: "Eye feel bad that folks had to take alternate roots, but I yam what I yam."

Either the driver was baked, or the truck hit a grate.

The drivers were fried and the road is greasy.

The driver had a chip on his shoulder and spud out of control.
