Chicken tenders, oh so crispy, yet so tender. An eight wonder of the world, if I may be so bold. We know and love them well. But would we eat them if, say, cases of them spilled off of a truck onto Route 35 in eastern Alabama as reported by the Washington Post on Tuesday?

And what if county officials are warning people that stopping to pick up those sweet tendos is causing an unsafe traffic hazard, which is a crime?

And that those tendies have been on the ground for more than a day and so they are probably unsafe to eat?

Personally? Yes.

Okay, I would never. Just got to have that on the record.

HOWEVER. If I were super into getting free stuff and eating roadkill, there’s a certain arithmetic in calculating the odds of getting food poisoning:

1. Were the boxes frozen in transport, which increases the time that they can be picked up and in theory still be safe;

2. What was the ambient temperature in Alabama that day;

3. Does the box have a tire tread on it.
