Summer traffic somehow gets worse

Animals are all about stopping our progress, and part of that is stopping the flow of regular human traffic.

We take you first to Germany. There, a motorist reported a dead badger lying in the middle of the road. Turns out the badger was just passed out drunk from eating overripe cherries. As we have said in the past, booze and animals just don’t mix.

Next, back over to the good ol’ U.S. of Alpha, where it was a normal day at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Wednesday–that is until the runway was invaded with turtles. Not just regular turtles, not even ninja turtles. They were horny turtles, and they delayed flights (like JFK needs any help in reasons for delayed flights) while workers shooed them away. The turtles are still at large.
