PEOPLE... Wendy's chili is made of p e o p l e
« on: March 24, 2005, 08:46:12 am »
HAHAHA:
http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/4313153/detail.html
Health authorities in California confirm that a woman bit into a human finger while eating a bowl of chili at a Wendy's in Tuesday night. She immediately spit out the finger and warned others to stop eating. Then she got sick.

http://www.dailystar.com/dailystar/news/67122.php
The woman, who asked officials not to identify her, immediately spat out the finger and warned other diners to stop eating, witnesses said.
Do you think that's when she said: "PEOPLE... Wendy's chili is made of  p e o p l e ."

So how hard is it to take some DNA from the finger and then trace the chain back?  Instead they're walking around telling everyone "hold up your hands, let me count fingers".

No wonder they all work at Wendy's.

I order Wendy's chili once and it smelt like someone took a dump in the chili.  And I haven't eaten at Wendy's ever since.

A rich mixture of 100% pure ground beef, two types of beans, and mixed vegetables with a spicy seasoning served with rice.



guess it wasn't 100% pure ground

It's a lot easier to get people to hold up their hands than it is to take DNA sample from a lot of people.  Especially since you have to have the person in front of you to take the sample.

It would so be worth it.  It would be horrible and discusting and I'm sure I'd puke for a few days whenever I thought about it.  But then the multimillion dollar settlement from Wendy's would go a long way to making me feel all better about it.

lol.  My buddy used to work there and they get the chili meat from what's left on the grill after flipping burgers.  All those half-burned chunks = chili!

I used to do countertop installs and we did a Wendy's once.  There was a big-ass bug smashed behind the splash (the back part of a coutertop that rests against the wall) and I couldn't pick it off with a putty knife.  If my countertop is still there, so is the bug. ;)

That stuff doesn't bother me though, I ordered breakfast there on my way out (it was an overnight install).

When they go around asking everyone to hold up their hands so they can count the fingers, what makes 'em think they can count properly, or that they know how many fingers a human being is supposed to have?

I guess you could say that Wendy's chili is now fortified with calcium from a human finger bone

When you want to puke, sticking your fingers down your throat helps. Wendy's are just saving you using your own fingers. It's a really just a public service.

I dare say the aids virus wouldn't thrive well under cooking temperatures either.
If a finger can get past their quality control, I wouldn't count on it being cooked at the right temperatures.

lol.  I wonder how much of the finger/hand/body was ground up and shipped to other stores?  I still haven't heard of anyone claiming the finger as theirs... maybe they're not around anymore?  Who else buys their meat from the same processing plant?  I'm waiting to hear about someone chewing on a McToe.

Ummmmm, finger food
Talk about rude, I ask for chili and they give me the finger!
Working at Wendys is easy, you barely have to lift a finger
Hey, I didn't make that chili, and finger pointing's not helping!
Yum, finger lickin good

There's enough "THIS :o was in my McWhatever!" stories floating around.  McD's has their own processing plants (dunno if that's everywhere, tho) so if you see them blaming the processing plant, but the plant is "unnamed", it was theirs, and it's their way of shedding the public eye without admitting it's their fault publicly.

I've SEEN fake fingernails from them, but they were never attached to the rest of the finger ;D
