Newsletter - Animal Writes sm
6 December 2000 Issue

by Greg Lawson

Last week a woman in Newport News, Virginia, was shocked to find a battered and fried chicken head in her order of wings from McDonald's.

I can't imagine why it would be any worse to open my lunch bag and find a chicken's head than it would be to find a wing or a leg or any other animal part. But ever since the poor woman was shocked into the realization that she was eating an animal with a face and a brain, she has been unable to get a good night's sleep.

Perhaps a large settlement from McDonald's will help her rest easier. You know, I get nauseated when I am near a McDonald's and smell the air, do you think legal precedence has been set for being grossed out?

In an interesting poll done by the online site of The Virginia Pilot newspaper they asked "If you found the fried chicken head, what would you have done?"
And the answers were...
Given it to the dog- 5.88%
Vowed to never eat chicken again- 12.69%
Eaten it- 12.38%
Accepted a new order- 24.61%
Sued the restaurant- 44.43%
