Why would you complain about getting a live frog in your packaged salad? That's proof the salad is very fresh (otherwise the frog would be dead) and you get a free pet (or snack if you like frog legs).

Or mot any exotic creatures.  Hell, I don't even demand they be particularly exotic.  But they do need to be alive.  Frogs, lizards, snakes, spiders, millipedes, crickets and centipedes -- any of the above would make me happy.

Those motherfarking goddamn annoying little sonsofbiatches fruit flies don't count.

The worst thing I can remember seeing was a tin of sardines 1/2 filled with eggs.  I know caviar is a delicacy but that's not exactly something you should be sneaking into your product, with a consumer completely unaware and incapable of fathoming the possibility of those disgusting, mustard sauce slathered round globules of gelatin showing up once he or she pulls up on the tab and peers inside the can.

Back in the 60's my grandmother got some of that pickled herring in wine sauce that had a wad of gum in it.

They sent her a complimentary case but she was done with eating that stuff from then on after that.

No lawsuits.  No news stories.  We weren't anywhere near as litigious then as we are nowadays.

1.  Carry a dead mouse or cockroach with you on your trip to the restaurant.

I've found a few weird things in foodstuffs over the years, the three ones that stick out in my mind are

1) A half of a grasshopper in my salad.  Yeah, I know, I may have eaten the other half.  Got it from the cafeteria at the place I used to work.  Eh, no real biggie, didn't make a big deal of it.  Just reported it to the kitchen, the chef kept the grasshopper.
2) I found a live beetle in my Dunkin Donuts Iced coffee.  It went into my mouth via the straw.  At first I assumed it was a coffee bean.  Until I spit it out and it crawled around in my hand.  Again, no big deal, I just showed it to the dudes behind the counter.
3) I once found a Rolaid(s) in may bag of Swedish fish.  Probably cross contamination from both being made at the same faccotry.  I did write  letter to the company, and send them the offending product.  They sent me a really nice box of candy.  No harm no foul.

I think though, the worst food experience I had was in college.

I was in the cafeteria, and had my hands full of stuff, I needed to grab a spoon,  so I went to the utensil island thingy, put some stuff down, grabbed a plastic spoon out of the holder, and to save space in my hands, I popped it into my mouth and set about collecting my other stuff from the table.  Within 2 seconds I knew something was wrong, and before I took the spoon out of my mouth, I know what it was.  It was a booger.  A dried booger, of unknown origin, on the spoon.


That one will haunt me.

I wasn't there, so naturally I defer to you, but is there a chance it was onion or parsley or something? Pretty often I take 'clean' spoons from my dishwasher and there are dried bits on them. They certainly look like boogers but are clearly plant matter or dried sauce of some kind. I don't do much rinsing of the utensils prior to putting them in the dishwasher.

ZAZ: It's not fair. I keep hoping for exotic spiders in my fruit and I never get any.


I was working at a Safeway in my high school years as a "courtesy clerk" (whatever the heck that means, yay for fake job titles). A crate of bananas came in one day and this giant spider, I mean farking ENORMOUS spider falls out of it and runs to the front of the store. A customer actually screamed and ran out of the place. Instead of killing it, my coworker for some reason managed to capture it on the end of a piece of cardboard and released it in some bushes outside. So now there's possibly a population of insanely large foreign spiders in Woodbridge, Virginia.

Nope, it was a booger.  These were plastic disposable spoons.

When I was in school, being a booger eater meant you were absolutely at the bottom of the social standings.  You were even a rung or two below Mexicans.  I'm pretty sure the freshmen that were old enough to buy cigarettes were also a notch above you.

Worst food incident I ever had was self inflicted. We'd had thief ant problems for a while, but we weren't sure where they were coming from. Well, I found out when I put a bag of chips on an old wooden filing cabinet we had. I must have eaten half the bag before I realized they were all absolutely covered in the damn things. See, thief ants are very, very small and reddish brown, and blend in very well with chip spices if you aren't looking.

Then we dumped an entire can of raid into the small hole they were coming out of. Didn't have problems after that.

I once found a cockroach waving "Hello!" to me from my salad.

I was on my lunch break and very hungry, so I was shovelling the salad into my mouth. The little roach almost ended up getting chewed up.

I was grossed out, and of course told everybody at work about it. Unfortunately the restaurant owner was friends with my boss, and a later found out that he (the restaurant owner) was pissed that I talked about my roach surprise.

As if I'm not going to mention cockroach salad to my coworkers.

Horse meat generally isn't so bad, and selling one as the other is definitely bad (people should know what they're eating, truth in labelling and all that), but not gross like some of the other things. However, unregulated horse-meat.... yeah, I wouldn't want to be eating that. The people involved definitely deserve to get smacked down, though I'll agree it shouldn't be at the top of the list.

Yeah, or arrest. Had a guy last week who reported rocks in his omelet and got really indignant about it, making a scene, campus security came over to see what the commotion was. The eggs come out of a carton into a clean pan, the veggies and meat were diced fresh that morning, there is literally nowhere gravel could have entered the equation. Oh hey, theres rock salt in this too, sir, did you scrape this off the bottom of your shoe? Led away in cuffs for disturbing the peace or something.
