It was NOT our Pork Rinds!!

The driver of a FedEx tractor-trailer rig lost control of his truck on Interstate 5 after choking on some spicy pork rinds, jackknifed and came to a stop in a muddy ditch, says a Washington State Patrol trooper.

Trooper Keith Leary says 42-year-old Edward Sutherland of Mount Vernon suffered minor injuries Monday. Leary says the man was driving his rig southbound from Blaine when he began choking and veered from the southbound lanes across the median into northbound lanes.

Are you sure? Do you have a warning label on the bag advising against Driving Large Vehicles or Climbing Ladders While Consuming Pork Rinds, both Spicy and Plain? Check your insurance coverage just in case.

Wow, I feel sorry for the guy (I have had that happen, minus driving a rig simultaneously). Still, I actually feel bad for you. If it HAD been your rinds, you would have gotten all kinds of free advertising.

Who was it who said something like 'Never mind the details, just spell the name correctly!'? And, from what I have heard, it works.

Better luck next time? Well, so long as no one dies, of course.

Ban la Chicharrones? Nunca! They'll have to peel them from my cold, dead hands.

Well that would explain the greasy crumbs on all triggers of Moi's guns. It also might explain the sudden interest from a certain moutain lion, chicharrones stuffed jogger, lightly dressed in a balsamic reduction.

Good evening Aunty Belle,

Better than choking on his beer. We know that only the highest quality pork rinds come from the site.

BTW, alcohol wipes are great for removing oily residue on triggers.
