Wendy's Old Fashioned Chili - it's finger-eatin' good
A woman bit into a partial finger served in a bowl of chili at a Wendy's restaurant, leading authorities to a fingerprint database Thursday to determine who lost the digit. The incident occurred Tuesday night at a San Jose Wendy's restaurant and left the customer ill and distraught, said Joy Alexiou, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clara County Health Department.
A few years ago, the Long John Silver fish'n'chips chain had their 25th anniversary. As a promotion, they had fried shrimp for 25 cents a piece the entire month of their anniversary.There was one right by work, so I stopped several times during the month and brought home a couple dozen shrimp for dinner.
The last time, we'd become kinda burned out on them, and couldn't finish the last half dozen or so. So my wife was picking the breading off and feeding the leftover shrimp to our cats.After removing the breading from one shrimp, we noticed it had green spots. Ugh.
Needless to say, that was the last time we went to LJS. We have a running joke in our family about an LJS commercial along the lines of "Arrr, matey! C'mon inta Long John Silver's for our famous Green Shrimp Special!"
