grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

gross

Did I want to hear about the finger someone found in their Wendy's chili on the news this morning? I wasn't even the one who ate the chili and I felt seriously sick after hearing about it. I changed the channel as soon as they started talking about how the finger was cooked with the spices and tomatoes, but it was too late. Seriously, they ought to have some kind of *gross warning* before talking about such things. It doesn't take much to make my stomach upset early in the morning. I also find the commercials about toenail fungus completely unnecessary. Especially during meal times, when someone might be eating cereal while watching TV. Does that creepy little creature need to lift up the person's toenail? Yuck! Actually, even the lotion commercial about the woman's hard, dry feet is enough to make me feel sick. Do I need to know that now her boyfriend loves touching her soft feet? No. I really have to stop watching the news in the morning. Oh- and despite the fact I would rather not think about the Wendy's finger incident, I am a bit bewildered as to why they don't know who's finger it is yet. Um- perhaps give a shout out to your processing plants (you do know at least where the food is processed, right?) to see if anyone is missing a finger? That might be a good idea. But, then it might turn into a story about the working conditions at such a place where the woman who lost their finger probably made $.10 an hour. God forbid we talk about that on the news. Focus on the American consumer- that's all people want to hear about.
