    Yeah, other than that missing finger they probably did a bang up job on sanitation

    Seems like most of these "finger food" stories turn out to be hoaxes or scams. Happened at a Wendy's down here several years ago. Somebody saved a fingertip severed in an industrial accident and decided to put it to use as a fund raiser. They got caught but business was off for quite a while at that location.

    I remember the Wendy's hoax a few years ago and I'll bet this turns out to be a hoax as well......that is unless the following dialogue occurred:

    "Hey Bill, shift's over and it's Miller time! You want to knock back a few at Walt's Tavern with us......hey wait a minute! Dude, wtf happened to your hand/!?"
    "Huh, what are you talking about?"
    "Dude, your hand!! It looks like you sliced off the top half of your index finger and blood is pulsing out big time!"
    "Oh yeah, well that happened about maybe an hour or so ago. I was slicing meat one minute and next thing you know the end of my finger was gone. Bummer. I never did find it. I wonder what ever happened to it?"
    "Aw man, I bet that's why that one lady was freaking out at the counter! It probably ended up in her order. I just figured she was having an argument with the manager about an expired coupon or something. Oh well. So you ready to go?...."
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    So glad he had a backup pair. Now his pickup won't be shy a pair. Nothing quite shows classiness of an individual like a pickup with bull nuts and bull horns.

    Guess it was God's will. Jesus needed to call him up, because Heaven was short one dumb ass.

    If he'd watched last night's PBS show on venom, he might have had more brains and less faith.

    Georgia man’s death during $EX nets his family $3M in trial

    His attorneys argued that attending cardiologist Dr. Sreeni Gangasani neglected to tell Martinez to refrain from getting too physical — presumably including any sexual activity — before the test was performed.

    While jurors sided with the family Tuesday, they agreed to a lesser amount after finding Martinez was 40% liable for his own death,

    My SIL once put my niece on her car's trunk and took off. thankfully she was in a really good car seat. And the SIL wasn't even on drugs; just stupid.

    Texas Gun Range to Hold Kids' Parties

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/texas-gun-r...ry?id=16525927

    Yep, take a safety class, shoot a few rounds (like that won't get the kiddies overly excited...), then it's time for cake and ice cream.

    My kid would have been all over this one if there'd been one around when he was 8 or 10.

    The real reason why Tom Barrett didn't win....

    Why didn't Tom Barrett knock off Scott Walker in the recent Wisconsin governor recall election? They didn't 'om' hard enough!
