Make Her Eat That Finger!

I brought to your attention the story about Anna Ayala and the finger in the Wendy's chili (here) and (here).

Well the law is catching up with the woman.

Woman in Wendy's Finger Case Arrested
By CHRISTINA ALMEIDA, Associated Press Writer


LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The woman who claimed she found a finger in her bowl of Wendy's chili last month has been arrested, the latest twist in a bizarre case about how the 1 1/2-inch finger tip ended up in a bowl of fast food.

Anna Ayala was taken into custody late Thursday at her Las Vegas home, police said.

Authorities would not provide details until a news conference Friday in San Jose, Calif. - the city where Ayala claimed she bit down on the finger in a mouthful of her steamy stew.

Ayala's claim that she found the finger tip, complete with a well-manicured nail, on March 22 initially drew sympathy. But when police and health officials failed to find any missing digits among the workers involved in the restaurant's supply chain, suspicion fell on Ayala, and her story has become a late-night punch line.

Punch line? Like: Wendy's should change their marketing approach. "Try our new chili. It tastes just like chicken."

Or how about this? "Try our new chili. It's finger lickin' good."
