This week's weather report in Louisiana didn't say cloudy with a chance of meatballs. But a massive corn dog accident did shut down the interstate there, which is about as close to the real thing as you can get.

KTBS reports a section of I-220 had to be closed in Shreveport early Tuesday morning after a semi-truck loaded with corn dogs crashed and covered the road with about 40,000 of the batter-coated sausages.

Shreveport locals were apparently happy to act on the five-second rule, stocking up on the free food for a later date.

"There were some reports that passersby were coming in and loading up on some of those corn dogs for dinner," Cpl. Marcus Hines told WWLTV. "It's been a big mess but a lot of folks will be eating pretty good this afternoon ... Everything you need to make a good corn dog was in the middle of the roadway."

Fortunately, no one was injured in the accident. Per WBRZ, the driver of the semi will not be cited.
