Butter and jam usually conjures up images of warm toast, but on an Indianapolis highway today it meant a huge slippery mess that closed part of busy highway during the morning rush hour.

A dairy truck crashed overnight on Interstate 465 and spilled over 45,000 pounds of butter, margarine and whipped cream.

"Our preliminary conclusion is that the truck driver fell asleep while driving, hit a barrier, and crashed at around 3:30 a.m.," Capt. David Dursten, spokesman for the Indiana State Police told ABC News.

I never heard of jam made out of butter, I always thought jam was made out of fruit.

The driver just prevented hundreds of Americans from ingesting GMO laden dairy products. . .and if margarine was aboard that was a double prevention. . .especially if it contained canola oil.

It got worse when the oregano truck, the parmesan cheese truck, and Newman all happened by at the same time.

I remember when Sambo’s restaurant had to change their name.

I could not find a single derogatory word in the story of “Little Black Sambo”.

Do you remember way back when the first margarine came in plastic packages and you had to pop a little red dot to make it turn yellow? A dairy truck driving by our house with those in it had the back door fling open and spilled lots of packages of that stuff out. Us kids collected it and loved popping the little red dot to turn the margarine yellow. :-)

Not to worry.

I went to the link and saw what spilled. Remember,

Because they couldn't believe it wasn't butter.
