Another version, still good, came on XM today, and while setting in traffic and I was singing it, then I figured I'd post the original for ya when I saw the thread go up a bit...

It's nice and all but I always feel like I'm going to end up in The Mothman Prophecies pt.2!

I have very little family so I stay on the road.
I have a daughter and some nephews in Ohio but they are grown and have no time...
I also have a brother in Texas that I'll visit every once in a while.

That is a whole lot of processed and rendered meat product!

I recall driving by the Hormel factory or rendering plant somewhere, I think maybe Souix Falls, and the smell was "interesting" crossing the bridge and also wondered how well they are treating whatever sludge by-product was flowing into the river.

I don't know about the waste treatment but I can tell you that most of the larger plants have an F.D.A. dept. right in the building. Also, most take pride in their resourcefulness of full product utilization, i.e. signs everywhere!
The smell? Oh, hell yes! In some places - the whole damn town. 🤢

And you do all your own lumping? Heckuva workout there even with a good pallet jack and roller.
