n a scene that reminded us of the beginning of The Simpsons Movie, an unidentified Tennessee man was stopped for improperly hauling a propane tank.
A police officer in Bradley County said he could smell propane from behind the man's van, and when the fire and rescue unit was called in, they found the tank had a small leak that was being plugged by a golf tee.

The driver cooperated with local police, and state police weren't available (apparently state officers handle load violations in Tennessee) so he wasn't charged, but he was required to get a trailer to finish hauling the tank.
We're just happy to start the week with a good laugh, and sad that Spider Pig (aka Harry Plopper) is nowhere to be found.
