Swiss Drivers Steal Fallen Melons

It is beyond my comprehension why Swiss drivers on a busy interstate would risk their lives to collect a bunch of melons.

But according to this article, the doors of a delivery truck from Spain popped open and melons started to tumble onto a Swiss interstate near Basel. Not only did this cause a sizeable traffic jam, but drivers apparently got out of their cars to steal the lost melons off the pavement!

At least people were not stealing money like what happened earlier this month in Italy… What would you slam on the brakes for? Cash? iPods? Rubber duckies? Please share…
