Amazing scene, yes, amazing photo? No way.

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

robots in disguise indeed.
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.
