Finger Lickin' Good

This story caught my eye: The Italics represent the actual story, the rest is my own addition.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A diner at a Wendy's fast food restaurant in San Jose, California, found a human finger in a bowl of chili prepared by the chain, local officials said on Wednesday.

“Quick!” said the newsmen, “Let’s get hold of a spokesman, any spokesman, for a good quote!” The reporters scrambled and hit the phones, looking for someone who could comment on the chili story. They found their man in the county department of environmental health.

"This individual apparently did take a spoonful, did have a finger in their mouth and then, you know, spit it out and recognized it," said Ben Gale, director of the department of environmental health for Santa Clara County. "Then they had some kind of emotional reaction and vomited."

“Some kind of emotional reaction?!”
“They had some kind of emotional reaction?”

Holy Crap! I guess the heck I’d have an emotional reaction! Shrieking something like “YAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGH” would be my warm-up for the mother of all emotional reactions.

I will forever be a fan of the Santa Clara County department of environmental health Ben Gale.
