Oh, please.

Sometimes you find these guys (slugs, caterpillars, whatever) in lettuce or in fresh produce. It happens. They're inconspicuous and designed by nature to, you know, blend in. You know when you complain? If the thing is dead and has been for a while, because that means the produce WASN'T FRESH.

Note she says she has problems with her stomach and the sad lug could have hurt her.

It's not the things you see that you should be worried about.  It's the things you can't see or didn't see that you should be concerned about.  And besides, slugs are just second cousins to squids, octopi and snails ... all of which are considered delicacies.  In fact, I'm sucking on a slug right now.  It's meaty and tastes like fishy chicken.

Stupid question, but how did she find the slug?

If she was one of the people that routinely opens their burger before eating, half of the burger wouldn't have been eaten.  If the slug is in the middle of the lettuce, how did she find it mid eating?  Did she for some reason open the burger halfway through?  Even if you at a slug with a burger, would you notice?  Do slugs have some terrible taste that would stand out?  Why does Mr Singh look like a chick?

I guess subby's not much younger than I am. I remember that commercial from circa 1977.

Also, sorry about the threadjack here, but is Fark.com popping open new tabs for anyone else, or is it just me? I keep seeing ads for something called 'swagbucks' and the occasional ad for Japanese mail-order dates, apparently triggered when I navigate around Fark...

I was wondering the same thing. It's not that I gobble my food down or anything, but I doubt I'd notice a slug that small unless I were looking for it.

Very much THIS. I was eating at a cafe in the Royal Ontario Museum. I got a salad and there was a dead ladybug in it. Rather than raise a stink, I quietly told the staff about it and went on my way. I'd much rather have a slug or bug in my food than a hair or fingernail or a booger. People go to the damn press for the lamest reasons these days. Remember when news was important?

Being it's from Australia, probably just looking at the picture will kill everyone here.

RTFA. The picture is of the complainant's wife. Wonder why. Hmmmmf. He ate half the sandwich.

Sooo.... He handed the rest of it to her. She opened it--maybe to make totally sure she wasn't being poisoned by him (maybe there's a plot here and she suspects)-- and found the slug. Then, (knowing she's suspicious) he feigned repulsion (and quickly thought of the convenient law suit he might use to cover his tracks) and took her picture with his phone, using the publicity to assuage her fears.

Poor woman will be as dead as the slug...

Yep.  As much as people want to believe otherwise, we don't eat a homogeneous set of foods that are exactly what's on the label.  Canned mushrooms?  Yup, there is an acceptable level of maggots that can be in a given container of a given size.  That bread you eat?  There's an acceptable level (and it's not zero) of rodent feces and cockroach parts that can be in there and still meet FDA standards.

What's really fun is finding a live caterpillar or something hiding in the produce you just picked up from the farmers' market.  Mmmmm... Food not slathered in pesticides is yummy.

We have a large garden and last week I made bbq chicken (homegrown!) and kale for dinner. We washed the kale but it always has those green caterpillars on it (we don't use any pesticides). I'm eating my dinner and really enjoying the kale until I found a big, fat, cooked worm. I couldn't finish my kale but I had zero difficulty eating a dead bird. Funny that.

Yeah, if you're going to eat random slugs out of your garden, at least cook them first.

So if you ask for no cheese on your burger at a fast food place, there's a 50/50 chance it will have cheese on it anyway.  Even if you ask multiple times.  I'm still going to go into one and be like, "Look, now I have to go to the ER.  Thanks.  I'm probably going to die now.  And I'm not even going to my eternal paradise because eating cheese was a sin anyway."

What a pussy.  I'd probably of eaten it and shrugged it off.  Doesn't top the time I went to a Burger King at Kadena Air Base and found a nice, fat 2 inch long grub in my salad.  I figured anything like slugs and grubs would hitch a ride through bagged lettuce...  just get your money back, no need to get the health department involved.

Raise hell if you find a loogie or a human turd in your sandwich.  I raised hell at a McDonald's once when I found a squashed human turd in my sandwich but then the staff told me that the sandwich was a McRib.

Word to the wise..IF you eat from any fast food place, and want to continue to do so; do yourself a favor and don't look too close at the "food" they are selling you.
