    Today I was driving the truck to pick the kids up from school and an approaching pick-up bounced a large object from it's bed, off the road, right into the front of my truck just south of the grill. I was going ~35, as was he, so it hit at about 70 MPH, I felt a big shudder and knew I'd hit something bad.

    Pulled off, dreading to see the damage to my front end.... found a 6 inch by 12 inch thick, macerated mass of ham stuck to the bumper. No damage.

    Driving home we passed the spot witnessed by much ham shrapnel all over the road and shoulder.

    Parked in the driveway and the yard mutts did complete clean up duty.

    At least the cut nailed your truck and not the entire pig!

    If you had cleaned it off the truck immediately and left it on the side of the road where the incident occurred, then a homeless person happening by could have had pork shouldered for Xmas.
