“It's only finger food! WHat's wrong with that?”
So..The investigation reveals that the finger belongs to Mark Daniels of San Jose...upon attempting to reach the Digitally Challenged Mr. Daniels the police discover he has been dead for a week...further investigation determines that the Autopsy of Mr. Daniels documented that at the time of his death, Mr. Daniels was in possesion of all his fingers......SO: does the Woman who ate the finger have a friend or family member working at the Funeral Home....?
Rosario Mendez, 36, an illegal immigrant worker at a St. Louis MO Meat Packing plant, loses a finger in the plant processing machinery...the finger is not recovered......
Jimmy "The Finger" Espinosa, reputed underworld thug, disappears prior to testifying against his boss, Tommy "The Butcher" Gigante........”
“I think Super T "nailed" it.”
“I have heard some scary stories about Wendy's chili.”
“I knew they changed something in thier recipe for chili, but I couldnt put my "finger" on it.”
“The news here actually showed the finger,it looked like it was just the skin and nail. Like the finger had been skinned. This is commonly happens when a ring gets caught in a machine and is pulled off. It is called degloving I think.”
“I heard the meat they use in their chilli is the coagulated blood stuff that cooks off the burgers. They collect it and then keep grilling it until it looks like hamburger.”
“Actually I have my info from a previous employee. They used to, don't know if this is still the same case, used the leftover, burned to a crisp, oops, I dropped that patty on the floor meat in their chilli.”
“Mmmmm! Dirt chilli!”
“The paper here this morning noted that Wendy's declined to name the chili supplier. But I would bet that they just lost the Wendy's account!”
“Restaurants have weird rules for that sort of thing. For instance, when I worked at MickeyD's, when we wasted a food item like a hamburger, both parts of the bun were discarded into a special waste can for counting later, and the meat and other dressings were thrown away into the regular trashcan.
Of course, we didn't make chili at McD's....”
“That was how they made their shakes, bit. You never saw it, but they took all the waste back into a secret room where all the waste was thrown into a giant immersion blender. Then they would separate the batch into 3 equal portions. Red dye number 7 and artificial strawberry flavoring would be added to make strawberry shakes in the first container. Cocoa powder was added to the second container making a chocolate shake. Finally, a single vanilla bean was added to the third container to make the vanilla shake.
You don't even want to know what was added to make the shamrock shake!”
“Years ago when I worked at Wendy's (high school) the old all dried out meat patties that had sat on the grill too long to serve as a burger were set aside for use in teh chili.”
“At the end of the day, the leftover food was supposed to be wasted, but often the closing crew just ate it.
Once when I was closing, we did this. About 5 minutes after we polished off the last dried-out burger, this poor guy drives up and begs us to sell him the leftover food, he didn't care, he was starving. We hated to have to tell him that we ate it all already.”
“Damn, I really liked those shamrock shakes too.”
“Who is Wendy?
And why is she licking my fingers?”
“It's the newest taste treat -- digital chili!”
“Geobeet - main ingredient biological, or silicon?”
“Digital music, digital cable, digital watches, digital exams, ... it's all the same I think. It's the going thing.”
“Coincidentally, I had a bowl and a half of BowlderGal's chili for dinner tonight.
I found almost NO fingers in it!”
“That is called analog chili Bowlder, to distinguish it from digital.”
“Santa Clara County sheriff's officials said Thursday that they planned to lift a fingerprint from the mystery digit, in the hope that the owner's prints might be listed on a database.
One fingerprint expert said it will take only seconds for investigators to identify the owner of the lost finger if the individual is among the millions of criminals, immigrants, school and bank employees, and other licensed professionals whose prints are on file in searchable federal, state and local databases.
County health officials have said that, although repulsive, the finger fragment was well-cooked and unlikely to cause health problems more serious than emotional trauma.”
“Yah, but did it taste like chicken?”
“I was a manager at a Burger King and what bitpusher said is what we did. If a burger got torn or ruined in some way, it went in a bin to be counted since they count all burgers sold and what is still in the freezer every day. If I ate a burger for a meal, which I was allowed to do, I had to log that in too.
Also, there was a marking system so that if the burger sat too long waiting for someone to order it, it went into the bad burger bin. Some burgers are made in advance and wrapped expecting customers to buy it, so there could be good burgers thrown out too. I can't remember how long it was allowed to sit wrapped up.”
“On a side note: This is why it's best to eat at home, because you know who's "fingers" went into making your food:)”
“My great-grandmother accidentally ground the tip of her finger into some meat for dinner once.
It was the Depression. They ate it anyway.”
“I like to spread wendy's chili on Wendy herself and then lick it all off.”
The incident occurred Tuesday when a customer took a bite of her chili and found what later was confirmed to be a human finger, said Ben Gale, environmental health director for the county Department of Health.
"She is suffering from trauma and the shock of finding this thing in her chili," he said.
The San Jose Mercury News identified her as Anna Ayala, 39, of Las Vegas.
Ayala told the Mercury News that she feels nauseous when thinking of the finger in her soup and is still losing sleep over the incident.
"That is very sick, sick, sick," she told the newspaper.
"It's disgusting. You're playing with the human race…. It's a taste I have never tasted in my whole life."
“Guess it doesn't taste like chicken then.”
“Was it raw or cooked?”
“According to the SF Chronicle, her attorney is also representing five other diners eating chili at Wendy's at the same time as Ayala.
Why can't I be lucky enough to bite into cooked human?”
“I wonder what the odds of that happening are? Are we talking better or worse than the lottery?”
“Jay Leno told some joke about another similar case where someone actually found a piece of chicken in a McDonald's chicken nugget, lol:)”
“I worked at McDonald's when they introduced their original chicken sandwich. It was pretty good. Especially when you were tired of eating hamburgers for your free meal, and Filet O'Fish just wasn't cutting it anymore. Then, McDonald's introduced that bane of chicken fast food, the McNugget. Pew.”
The plot thickens...
“Are they gonna finger the finder?”
“so the finger finder was fingered in a fast food frenzy?”
“Finger finder figures on frying Wendy's with fraud, fouls up when Feds find femur and firm flesh in footlocker.”
“I love this line in the story:
"All the employees at the San Jose store were found to have all their fingers,..."
"OK, Folks. Line up. Show me yer fingers...."”
