    NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Canisters of bull semen caused quite a scare on the on-ramp to Interstate 65 South Tuesday morning.....The canisters fell off a Greyhound bus just after 5 a.m. as the bus traveled around the curve of the ramp just south of downtown Nashville....Fire and emergency crews were called to the scene amid reports of a foul odor.....When they discovered four unmarked canisters with steam and an unpleasant odor coming from them, they shut down the on-ramp and called HAZMAT crews.

    Officials traced the containers to Greyhound after finding bus tickets on the ground. The bus did not know it lost its load and had continued on.....Authorities called Greyhound, who, after speaking with the driver the bus, determined the canisters to be filled with straws of frozen sperm packed in liquid nitrogen.

    The load originated in Columbus, Ohio and was en route to a breeding facility in Laredo, Texas.

    Someone I know in the area posted on Facebook:

    “You can stop now. No more friends across the country need to email me about the truck of bull semen that overturned at I-40/65 this morning. Hazmat crews have responded.”

    No. Let me try to explain this slowly. He lives in the area and was getting lots of emails from friends who were teasing him about the situation. He also knows, as I do, that semen and "seamen" are two different things.

    Just a mere slip of the keyboard,..Seamen don't normally impregnate cows..Back to your friend, just what does he do with bull semen that prompt people to tease him ?

    Different strokes for different folks.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    It's just because he lives in the vicinity. That's all.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
