Wendy's Returns The Favor - Gives Back "Finger!"

Wendy's has upped the reward to $100,000 for information concerning the origins of the finger alleged to have been in their chili. Essentially, they are making the accusor, Anna Ayala, sweat. Good for them!

Ayala has dropped her lawsuit. Anyone with 2 brain cells to rub together can see this is because too many people are asking too many questions. Questions Ayala does not appear to be comfortable answering.

Her story was hinky from the beginning, but if true, potentially quite rewarding. What jury wouldn't award big for this? What juror wouldn't feel revulsion at the thought biting into a severed digit?

We know the jury would reward big, because we ARE the jury. We know what we'd do and how we'd feel. And that's the problem - Wendy's has lost business over this unsupported claim. It isn't as simple as Ayala saying, "Never Mind!"

Wendy's is absolutely right in wanting to get to the bottom of this, and aggressively pursuing the answers. Dave Thomas - by all reports - was a really decent guy, but even he would think that (just this once) it would be okay to give this woman The Finger in return.

And all of this makes me glad that I don't eat chili con carne. (Although when I did, I liked it with onions and cheese, hold the Lee Press on Nails.)
