I remember reading about that on FARK last week. It wasn't enough to stop me from going out to get a Wendy's chili and eating it while reading the ensuing thread.

I'm wierd like that, sometimes...

Very, very often these things tend to turn out to be plants and more than a little set up.

We actually got Wendy's for dinner at the office THAT VERY NIGHT. It was quite tasty.

As for the set up, I've got to say it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

1. They rather emphatically keep ruling out places the finger could have came from. About the only place left for it to come from is the worker who ladled out the chili.
2. This woman bit clean through the finger at the last knuckle? I'm looking at my finger right now and it seems to me that there's a bone there. (Although with the boneless chicken craze going on right now, maybe it's one of Wendy's new offerings.)
3. Was anybody else reminded of the McKenzie brothers sketch on how to insert a mouse into your beer?

    Cops Nab Woman, Say Wendy's Finger a Hoax

    (image removed) By KIM CURTIS
    Associated Press Writer


    SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Police investigating how a human finger ended up in a woman's bowl of Wendy's chili declared the claim a hoax Friday and arrested her on charges of attempted grand larceny.

    The arrest of Anna Ayala at her home outside Las Vegas was the latest twist in a case that has become a late-night punch line, taken a bite out of Wendy's sales and forced the fast-food chain to check its employees for missing fingers.

I had a Wendy's combo with Chili for dinner, just because of this story.

Stupid woman.

I spent most of the night at the office giggling because Wendy's is out for BLOOD right now. This woman is going to seriously regret trying to pull this one.

How Wendy's handled this has just been textbook. They didn't buckle early and hand her a check because they didn't want the hassle of dealing with it. They're going to come out of this looking like geniuses because they stood up for themselves and refused to legitimize her by saying "Well, we must have goofed."

I'm kinda surprised at all the news reports I've seen saying Wendy's business has been down in some parts of the countries. It always seemed like an obvious hoax to me at least, seeing as how NOBODY in the world (except some crazy woman that was attacked by, what?, a lynx??) seems to have lost a finger. Plus, Wendy's is still delicious!

Thanks for resurrecting this thread. I still won't eat Chili, but I never liked it before anyway. Locally, the Wendy's are typically too expensive for me anyway - but I feel for them and hope they get awarded everything this women earns for the rest of her life.

At the same time, I can just see the verdict - guilty, and the punishment - she has to eat at Wendy's!

The best rumor I heard floating around was that the finger came from someone who was born with six fingers on one hand. Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.

Unlike this Wendy's case, this Arby's case is legit and he wants $50,000 which is more than the undisclosed settlement offer.

Edit: Got a little zero happy...

That link says $50,000, not $500,000. That's pretty disgusting, though. Got a little queasy just reading it.

Ewww to both the Wendy's and the Arby's things. I don't eat at Wendy's anymore, just because the one closest to my house is completely unsanitary. I mean, it's the fast food restaurant from hell. But rather than sue them, I've simply stopped going.
