Well, finally we know.

    SAN FRANCISCO - The severed finger in the Wendy's chili caper was apparently separated from its original owner when it was pinched off in the tailgate of a truck in a work accident, according to an employee with a Nevada asphalt company.

    Pat Hogue, an estimator with Lamb Asphalt Maintenance in North Las Vegas, told the San Francisco Chronicle that a worker lost the tip of his finger on the job five months ago.

Did any other wieners get the free Frosty this weekend?

Welcome back, customers.

Actual conversation I heard from the folks in front of me in line (translated Man and Woman from foreign language I also understand but obviously the clerk did not).

Woman (in native language, did not appear to understand English) - Is the chili safe?

Man (in native language - to woman) - I'll find out
Man (to clerk in English) - Is the chili hot?

Clerk - it's always fresh.

Woman (interrupts, to man) - is there anything in it I wouldn't like?

Man - What's in the chili?

Clerk (smiles and waves all her fingers) - We all have all our fingers and toes.

Man translates to woman, both look very puzzled.

Man to clerk - Hot peppers or big chunks of onion?

Clerk - No, but you can add hot sauce if you like..(short pause)...Would you like the free Frosty?

Man translates to woman.

Woman - why would I want hot sauce on a Frosty?


Maybe you had to be there, but this woman had no idea what was going on - I was surprised I understood her as its been years since I heard that dialect. Study multiple languages for entertainment purposes - it's amusing to play a fly on the wall when you least expect it.

Man, this story gets dumber every day.


    The Las Vegas man whose severed fingertip ended up in a cup of Wendy's chili gave his mangled digit to a co-worker to settle a $50 debt -- but had no idea it would be used in an alleged scheme to swindle the fast-food chain, the man's mother said Tuesday.
