I was the last one left after the nuclear holocaust, eh. The whole world had been destroyed, like U.S. blew up Russia and Russia blew up U.S. Fortunately, I had been offworld at the time. There wasn't much to do. All the bowling alleys had been wrecked. So's I spent most of my time looking for beer.

Yeah. OK, well, uh, we found, uh, this mouse in a bottle of YOUR BEER, eh. Like, we was at a party and, uh, a friend of ours - a COP - had some, and HE PUKED. And he said, uh, come here and get free beer or, uh, he'll press charges.

/My brother and I used to say that drownin' in beer was like heaven, eh? Now he's not here, and I've got two soakers... this isn't heaven, this sucks.

Brap mildly relevant factoid #478...

My mother once found a piece of cardboard in a can of mushrooms. The company graciously shipped us an apology letter along with a case of mushrooms. It was our Woodstock, our Summer of Cassarole.

Well, I found some bits of a plastic bag in some Campbell's Golden Mushroom soup two weeks ago... true story.

Went to their website(pops), filled out the form... a few days later I get a call from them ... they sent me out about $8.00 in coupons (2 of them for $2/ea).

Yeah, I'm easy. It didn't kill me, so why take it any further. Besides, my folks were good ol' "let the kid eat dirt if he wants to" kinda folks... builds character AND immunity.

FTA: ""I thought it was just a ball of hair. My daughter said, 'Mama, that's a mouse,'" Ingram, who lives in Erwin about 250 miles east of Nashville, said Wednesday.

Oh, well, if it was just a ball of hair, I guess she would have eaten it and said nothing.

She thought it was just a ball of hair?!? Unless you are Cousin It, that should give you reason to pause...
 
2006-02-08 09:46:09 PM  
Yeah WTF is up with her thinking it was just a ball of hair and that it would ok to eat?
 
2006-02-08 09:47:22 PM  
Ingram said she believes the mouse was in the can and could not have gotten into the pot of soup any other way.

Yes, I'm sure a woman in Erwin, Tenn., who cannot tell the difference between a hairball and a mouse, and serves a soup with a hairball in it, could not possibly have any mice in her house. It had to be done at the plant.

Ok, this is like an aerial view. Ok, take the 401 to here, then take highway 6 north, ok? It goes right up here. That's the offramp.

Don't forget to take a right at highway 6, eh?

When I was 10 years old, I found a catapillar floating in an unopened 12-oz bottle of 7-Up (this was back in the day when they bottled their product in a green glass bottle). My mother called the local 7-Up distributor and we ended up getting a free case a week for a year. We didn't ask for it either, they offered it. Naturally, we inspected every bottle after that.
Shiat happens.

There's always somebody who wants to discuss the topic of TFA rather than the obscure movie reference, isn't there?

of course i et like such a pig back then that it wasn't until my second or third bowl that i noticed that the box had thousands of bugs in it...

Phyllis Ingram said her 89-year-old mother, Pearl Parkey, discovered a dead mouse in a bowl of bean with bacon soup but only after she had put it in her mouth.

She put the bowl in her mouth? WTF?

Having worked one summer in the soup factory that made the soup for all the rich gits who shop at Waitrose and so on I can easily believe this story to be true. Its creepy what stuff is found in them things.

Before Mars Chocolate bars labeled that some of their products may contain peanuts and other various goodies, some of my buddies and myself called them up and said that we found nuts in a chocolate bar. They apologized and sent us about $200 in chocolate and coupons.

I never understood the reasoning behind that, they sent me basically the same stuff, even ones with peanuts and other nuts - even after we said we were allergic to them.

Hopefully that guy was let go.
 
2006-02-08 10:33:35 PM  
Short on cash? Here is the solution.

1) Open cheap can of soup.
2) Insert dead mouse. (Readily available at any pet supply store)
3) Contact media and claim to have almost eaten it. NOTE: Do not skip this step. It is critical to the final outcome.
4) Hire a attorney to file suit for mental anguish, pain and suffering, lost wages, etc.
5) Profit!

I found a piece of glass in a bagle. It was like a little pea. It was so ground down and rounded that I imagine it came from the flour mill.

I didn't bother contacting anyone and finished the bagle. it was yummy.

The family is considering hiring a lawyer for help with their complaint, but Ingram declined to say what the family wants from Campbell's.

Uh-huh.

This one time, I got some stuff from McDonald's, and it had some food in it.

True story!


(note to Farkers: She didn't necessarily stop eating when she was told it was a mouse. All TFA says is, she didn't notice it until after she started eating. *Then*, presumably, she assumed it was a ball of hair, and was informed of its inherent mousitude)

I once opened an Almond Joy bar and found that it had been half eaten at the plant.

I decided to waste another $.50 and buy another one instead of making a fuss. I'm sure someone was just hungry before the lunch break.

My mother once opened a can of Green Giant peas. All that was in the can were the empty "shells" of the peas and the 'pea juice'.

She carefully drained all the 'pea juice' and packaged up the can containing the 'pea shells' and mailed it off to the address on the can with a "WTF?" letter.

Next week, we got a bigass box filled with all kinds of canned veggies complements of the Green Giant company. There must have been at least three dozen cans in that box.

Sometimes it pays to complain!

"I found a piece of glass in a bagle. It was like a little pea. It was so ground down and rounded that I imagine it came from the flour mill.

Smart.

If it's been ground down because it was in the mill, then the pieces ground off were turned into glass dust and mixed with the flower. Eaten fine glass particles enter the blood stream and damage the heart.

I bet it tasted good though

There were others... duh.

(just that you usually don't see a $2.00 coupon... sorry I didn't spell it out)
 
2006-02-09 12:06:23 AM  
I would imagine that any glass small enough to enter the bloodstream is too small to damage the heart.

I shiat you not - I once found a mouse's tail in a can of Campbell's tomato soup. Rather than calling my local news outlet, however, I threw the can out. And opened another and had me some soup. Dammit.
 
2006-02-09 12:47:50 AM  
Hmmmm....more likely the mouse came from the house - prolly fell outta the oven vent, right into her soup.

I'm sorry, but campbell's tomato soup comes condensed, and then you add milk or water - I can't believe she didn't see something as large as a mouse in the soup as it plopped out of the can, or as she was stirring it in the pot.

No, she notices it after it happens to land in her bowl (didn't notice it as it was ladled out of the pan and poured into a bowl). No, didn't notice it until it reached her spoon - who are these people trying to kid?

My great aunt worked for Peter Paul in Connecticut. At the time they always had little snack trays of almond joys and mounds available for anyone to grab and eat, because they didn't want people messing with the line. They probably don't do that any more, though.
 
2006-02-09 05:04:14 AM  
I'll believe anything, so the fact that this 89 year old woman tried to eat a mouse is definitely plausible. BTW, Campbell's bean/bacon soup has very small edible pieces in it, so unless it was a pink, baby mouse, the size is a dead giveaway. Regardless, SHE'S 89 F'ING YEARS OLD! Just eat the mouse and shut-up!
