Finger Served To Diner
Taking a cue from Wendy's (see gross things found in food
, TGI Friday's served a diner a piece of a human finger
. Except in this case the finger piece really did get on the customer's plate as a result of a kitchen mishap, not because the customer put it there himself. Apparently one of the kitchen workers had sliced off a bit of his finger by mistake, and while everyone was rushing to help him, no one noticed that the finger piece had landed on a plate of food, which was then served to a customer. The customer noticed right away. But it doesn't look like the diner will be able to make millions off of this, because the police told him it wasn't a criminal matter.

In related news, the suspects in the 2004 Cracker Barrel Soup Mouse case (also described in my post about gross things found in food) have been convicted on felony charges of conspiracy to commit extortion
because of their demand that Cracker Barrel pay them $500,000 after they falsely claimed to have found a mouse in their soup while dining there.
