1. Is any of that corn still edible?
2. Is that Optimus Prime?

If it's Optimus Prime, he's really let himself go.

I believe it - I've seen some pretty wild overloading in Africa.

Cocoa trucks in ghana - they overload & then queue up behind hills to wait for the traffic police to go home.

It looks to me like a big scary corn monster eating the van.
I'm gonna have nightmares tonight.

Yes, of course its a hoax. Reuters decided that their reputation as one of the worlds largest & best press agencies was worth putting on the line to forge a photo of a truck laden with corn.
