For lunch today: well dressed asphalt!

Post by eslapion » Wed Jul 20, 2016 1:36 am

A mixture of salad dressing and mayonnaise trickled out of a transport truck following a rollover...

Bon appétit!

From the looks of it, "trickled" is not exactly the right word for that.

It's more like "thousands of gallons poured right down on the pavement"...

a wave of molasses rushed through the streets at an estimated 35 miles per hour (56 kilometers per hour), killing 21 and injuring 150
Hence the expression "as fast as molasses".
