What is this thing?



Mrs. LL sends this dispatch from Fort Worth Highway 287 in Wise County:
  • 12 axles (approximately)
  • "looks like some motorized contraption designed by the pigs from angry birds" (Editor's note: What the heck is this crazy lady talking about?)
  • There are two motorcycle cops in front of it and a long line of vehicles behind it unable to get on the freeway because he's blocking the on-ramp. 
Edit: She tracked the thing down later at Harmon Road and 287, and I enhanced the photo in the Liberally Lean Laboratory.

It actually looks like a Transformer. Most likely the new Optimus Prime.
