Take a look around you — because you will never forget where you were the day you heard about the Champagne Massacre of '13. Yesterday, Wednesday September 18 at around 2.30pm, a truck filled to the brim with bubbly fell over, split open and got a highway in Connecticut absolutely wasted.
The incident happened after the truck driver "failed to yield" and struck "the rear end of a DOT truck". An environmental contractor quickly arrived to start cleaning up the the violently popped bottles, but the damage had already been done.
Both drivers suffered minor injuries, but thankfully no one was seriously hurt. The number of stiff, uncomfortable parties ruined by the bottles' deaths will forever remain a mystery. The champagne is survived by 13 tonnes of crackers in a warehouse, and has finally rejoined its partner, Italian cheese, in that great, big cocktail party in the sky. [WFSB]
