    Jeez. I thought this was about something else
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    I saw the thread title, and I knew what this was about.

    What are people thinking!?!? If I were on a production line and I lost a digit, I'd be screaming to get the darn thing back so it could be reattached!! But no! Someone apparently went on with life and ignored the fact that the one finger salute was no longer possible. Makes me wonder.

    Gross!!! I have a hard enough time finding a hair in something I am eating...I cannot imagine any human body parts, simply gross. How on earth does something like that happen? Thier cups of chili aren't that big, don't you think a one inch lump of a finger would get noticed before someone bit into it??? eeewwewewewewww

    What are the odds that I had just finished a single with cheese and fries from Wendy's last night minutes after this story appeared. Its true.

    But, come on, really, how many fingers just go missing and end up in the chili at Wendys?

    I liked this line in the AP article...

    ...the finger had been cooked at a high enough temperature to kill any viruses.
    I'm sure that was no small comfort to the woman eating the chili!

    If only I was in the advertising game.....

    "Hold the pickle, hold the finger....special orders don't upset us."
    "Where's the finger?" (Apologies to Clara Peller.)
    "We're open late......surely you have fingered that out."
    "Hi, I'm Ms. Lovelace. Make mine biggie size, please."

    Bear...you've missed your calling. Maybe you should be in the ad game?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Since no one has "claimed" the finger, I imagine some folks are wondering where the rest of the body is.....
