shaken & stirred

welcome to my martini glass


leaving you with the finger

This may be my favorite news story ever -- and it's on the Wendy's finger fiasco. (Long story short: the woman who found the finger in her chili was arrested today.) I particularly love the final paragraphs:

The finger case took another turn last week when authorities compared the Wendy's finger with the DNA of a woman whose fingertip was chewed off by a leopard in Nevada. Authorities, however, ruled out a match.

The probe put to rest speculation that the finger might be that of Sandy Allman, 59, of Pahrump, Nev. Allman lost the tip of a finger Feb. 23 when a leopard kept on her rural property attacked her.

The case of the Wendy's finger has drawn media attention from around the world and, according to Wendy's officials, led to a sharp drop in sales. Last week, Wendy's doubled its reward to $100,000 for leads in finding the finger's original owner.

On Thursday, Wendy's announced it would offer free Frosty shakes to all Bay Area customers this weekend as a show of goodwill and commitment in the wake of its investigation.

Free Frostys! Oh, and, hey, by the way, have you lost your finger lately?
