Dump truck overturns

Looks like breakfast is ruined.

A truck carrying 40,000 pounds of Popeye's biscuits overturned on Highway 59 in Pearl River County, Mississippi Wednesday.

The accident shut down parts of the road for hours and diverted morning traffic.

Janel Forte, a reporter from WLOX, said that the driver and passenger were fine.

The biscuits are fine, too.

They were transported to another truck for delivery before the area could be cleared, and Twitter was delighted.

Most tweets echoed the same sentiment -- people were willing to take care of the biscuits themselves.

Seriously, it's like these people had these fresh, biscuit-related jokes prepared for this moment all along.

Now we're waiting for a butter truck to safely overturn.
