Classic good news/bad news situation in Seattle: bad news, a tanker truck with butane flipped over in I-5 in Seattle. Good news: there was a taco truck stuck in the ensuing traffic jam to keep everybody occupied.

Okay, so maybe it’s not the best idea to light up the grill anywhere in the vicinity of a potential butane spill. But hey, you’ve got to do whatever you can to make a few extra bucks these days. Truly a fine example of the entrepreneurial spirit:

The taco-truck owner, Thomas Lopez, 41, said by phone Monday that the truck and his three employees were headed to South Lake Union to serve lunch before the tanker crashed.

But the collision didn’t stop them from opening for the hungry masses.

“We are ready to serve food, everywhere,” Lopez said.

I just hope the traffic broke up pretty soon after people got their food, because we all know how quickly a taco can go through your system. Here’s to hoping there were a few of these stuck on I-5 as well:
