getting the finger

Surprise, surprise! The woman going after Wendy's because she allegedly found a severed human finger in her chili has a history of filing lawsuits. Can you say the word "gold-digger?" Good. I knew you could.

Anna Ayala, 39, who hired a San Jose, Calif., attorney to represent her in the Wendy's case, has been involved in at least half a dozen legal battles in the San Francisco Bay area, according to court records.

She brought a suit against an ex-boss in 1998 for sexual harassment and sued an auto dealership in 2000, alleging the wheel fell off her car. That suit was dismissed after Ayala fired her lawyer, who said she had threatened him.

The case against her former employer was settled in arbitration in June 2002, but it was not known whether she received any money.

Speaking through the front door of her Las Vegas home Friday, Ayala claimed police are out to get her and were unnecessarily rough as they executed a search warrant at her home on Wednesday.

"Lies, lies, lies, that's all I am hearing," she said. "They should look at Wendy's. What are they hiding? Why are we being victimized again and again?"

Yeah. We need to get to the bottom of these "lies, lies, lies." And give the right person the finger.


Yeah, she's probably guilty...but there's still no fuckin way you'll get me into any fast food restaurant again. Between the deep fried chicken head from McDonald's a few years ago and this finger incident...true or not...I've been cured of any fast food tendencies forever.

Chili Con Didos has been a popular dish here in the southwest for many years, whats the big deal?

Tell her to keep going back. If you get all five, you win a prize.

What's wrong with a deep-fried chicken head?

What's wrong with a deep-fried chicken head?

To which, I reply "What isn't wrong with a deep fried chicken head??"

Plucked or unplucked?

No surprise that this woman is from San Francisco.

I wouldn't be surprised if she didn't tote the finger in, possibly in a zip log baggy, grab her food, and while no one was looking, slipped the finger in...

I'm just sayin.

Zip LOCK baggy. Ahem.

Ain't that like finding the baby in the king cake at Mardi Gras? Or a dime in the black eyed peas on New Years? That's a good thing right? Seriously, where does one get a human finger? If she did, where's the rest of this person. Maybe the bitch is a psycho fuckin' murderer.....just sayin'.

I'm wondering if there's a mortician friend lurking in the shadows...

Chablis--There's no reason to expect that this couldn't happen in any other kind of restaurant either, or for that matter in packaged foods bought at a grocery store.

Any idea just what ends up in ground beef?

Or worse yet, hot dogs?

Jimmy Dean "pure pork" sausage.

I wonder how many chicken heads it takes to make a chicken hot dog, and which "parts" go into a chicken finger?
