“Trucks carrying beef and beans collided. It caused chili con carnage”

"Chili con carnage” (chili con carne + carnage) is a jocular portmanteau term. “A lorry carrying spicy beef collided with a lorry carrying rice. It caused chilli con carnage” was posted on Twitter on February 16, 2014. “A truck carrying spicy food for prison inmates has overturned on the M62. It’s chilli con carnage out there. #1PUN” was posted on Twitter on August 1, 2014.


Wikipedia: Chili con carne
Chili con carne (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈtʃili koŋ ˈkaɾne]; English: chili with meat), commonly known in American English as simply “chili”, is a spicy stew containing chili peppers, meat (usually beef), and often tomatoes and beans. Other seasonings may include garlic, onions, and cumin. Geographic and personal tastes involve different types of meat and ingredients. Recipes provoke disputes among aficionados, some of whom insist that the word “chili” applies only to the basic dish, without beans and tomatoes. Chili con carne is a frequent dish for cook-offs and is used as an ingredient in other dishes.
