Finger Food, Anyone?
I was pleasantly surprised to hear the fate of the California couple who tried to bilk money out of Wendy’s by claiming the wife had found a finger in a bowl of Wendy’s chili. Turns out she planted the finger herself, the finger her husband had obtained from his unfortunate co-worker who had lost it in an industrial accident. The couple were ‘fingered’ by authorities who doubted the story since the finger in the chili hadn’t been cooked. See, you should always consult Hannibal Lecter before you try to pull off a stunt like that. The wife got 9 years in prison, the husband 12. That’ll teach them to fool around with a fast food giant!
