    Default Then they had some kind of emotional reaction and vomited.

    Updated: 11:06 a.m. ET March 24, 2005

    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.

    “This individual apparently did take a spoonful, did have a finger in their mouth and then, you know, spit it out and recognized it,” said Ben Gale, director of the department of environmental health for Santa Clara County. “Then they had some kind of emotional reaction and vomited.”

    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.

    You could say that Wendy's employees are so dedicated that they give a piece of themselves to the company every day!

    Is that what they mean by "giving you the finger?"

    Default Miss Manner's views on the proper etiquette in this matter

    Dear Miss Manners:
    Should one eat Wendy's Chili with the fingers?

    Dear Perplexed:
    Eating Wendy's Chilii with the fingers is improper. The fingers should be eaten separately!

    Does a string of very loud, four letterd words strung together count as an "emotional" response.

    I'm trying to picture the supervisor overseeing the digit-removing incident at the processing plant where we must assume the finger was first lopped off. Did it occur to them that after the employee lost a finger that maybe they should look for it, and if they didn't find it, wouldn't they have been wise not to can up any tomato juice for a minute?

    Dang, that's icky. If it weren't reported by credible sources, it's got a snopes.com trip written all over it.

    I can just picture the line up for this:

    From the Snopes report-
    Investigators have ruled out the possibility that the finger formerly belonged to an employee of the San Jose Wendy's outlet:

    Employees at the Wendy's store were asked to show investigators their fingers after the Tuesday night incident.

    All employees' digits were accounted for, officials said, adding the well-cooked finger may have come from a food-processing plant that supplies the company.

    "All of our employees have ten digits," said Denny Lynch, a spokesman for Wendy's International Inc., based in Dublin, Ohio.

    That was not an emotional reaction. Thats what happens when you put your fingers down the back of you throat
