Finger in Frozen Custard
In the wake of the Wendy's Finger Chili, we now have reports of a finger found in a pint of Kohl's Frozen Custard. But this incident appears to be real. The store that sold the custard admits it had an employee who lost a finger. That's the problem with hoaxes. You hear enough of them and you start to think everything is fake. Now this poor guy who found a finger in his custard has to convince everyone that he didn't make it up. (thanks to Heidi for the link).

He thought it was candy and actually had it in his mouth...

Yuck, yuck, yuck.

This story has been running on the news here constantly and let me tell ya... there are some gross images to go along with the story.

They showed the digit in question on the news last night and it just about made me lose my dinner!

VERY disgusting...

Tell me about it.. Heaven forfend they should show two seconds of boobie, but go right ahead and show mangled human flesh all you want.. at dinnertime.. Almost as bad as channel-flipping while 'Fear Factor' is on.

So if an employee lost a finger while working the production line, don't you think they'd shut it down to make sure it didn't fall into the mix?? Something here points to a fabrication(pun intended).

OK, if no one else is going to say it, I suppose I will.

It's too bad that Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurants already beat them to the slogan of "Finger lickin' good!"

(I know, that's terrible.)

Remind me not to eat at places where any of help have bandages on their hands.

I guess this really is a nation founded on the principles of "Finders Keepers!"
