    SAN FRANCISCO - A diner at a Wendy’s fast food restaurant in San Jose, California, found a human finger in a bowl of chili prepared by the chain, local officials said.

    Local officials launched an investigation after the incident on Tuesday night and the medical examiner determined on Wednesday that the object was a human finger.

    Officials are trying to determine if the finger came in the raw materials Wendy’s used to prepare the chili, Gale said.

    Wendy’s International Inc. corporate office did not immediately return a call for comment. Wendy’s is the third-largest hamburger chain.

    I just read about that on a different forum. Yummy!

    Did they ever say what they really did with Dave Thomas's body?

    I worked at Wendy's in HS and I have no clue how a finger could get in the chili unless it was in one of the cans of tomatoes.

    I wondered where I had lost that.

    Its probably a load off your mind that you didn't get it caught in someone else's wife.

    There will be more lawyers trying to represent this poor person in the lawsuit against Wendy's than the number of bowls of chili that particular Wendy's sells for the rest of the year!

    I had never considered Chili to be a "finger food". :tongue2:

    I said that was HYPOTHETICAL.

    Hmm, good point, though. Pass the chips.

    Yeah... but you were sweating it.... thinking "Did I leave any evidence it was me? DAMN... stupid fingerprints"

    Here's a little baggie of chips... enjoy.

    Something like this happened last year in Canton at Red Robin. I think it was part of a thumb in someone's salad. The restraunt didn't get many visitors for awhile, but as of now it's back up to "normal" from what I see when I drive by.

    Obviously not the restaurant's fault.

    It was a drive-by thumbing.

    Some kind of emotional reaction?! What, like that would be an excessively dramatic reaction?

    I'm actually more worried about DNA than fingerprints.

    OSUsushichic Fired up! Ready to go!

    I wonder how many people are going to tell the cashier to "hold the finger" instead of "hold the mayo." Actually, it sounds like something Manfred would do. :biggrin:
