I don’t know about you, but when I eat lunch each day, the last thing I want to find in my salad is a snake head.
TGI Friday’s said lab tests show that a snake head a customer said he found in a Friday’s meal was never cooked – indicating it was put on the plate after it left the chef.
Amy Freshwater, a spokeswoman for Carrollton-based Friday’s said the company will “prosecute the individual or individuals involved.”
A customer in Clifton Park, New York said he found a severed snake head under his broccoli on Sunday.
He snapped a picture of the head, then showed it to the manager, who apologized and comped the diner’s meal.
News of the find spread quickly across the Internet.
Freshwater said in a statement Friday the company has asked for a criminal investigation with the New York State Police.
“This is obviously something we took very seriously and we immediately pulled the product from all of our restaurants until an investigation could be completed,” Freshwater said.
“It has been concluded that the snake’s head was placed in the food at some point after the cooking process.”
Police are investigating, she said.

I love Sports Illustrated. I really like the way Don Banks of SI thinks too. Here’s why:
Since the NFL’s realignment to eight four-team divisions in 2002, the league’s 12-team postseason has averaged slightly more than six new entries per year (6.4 to be exact, see table). That means we have come to count on at least half the NFL playoff field rolling over most every season, making for the annual guessing game of who’s in and who’s out when it comes to next January’s Super Bowl tournament.
With the majority of this offseason’s personnel maneuvers behind us, it’s time to hazard our best guesses about the turnover factor in the 2009 playoff field. The goal is two-fold: Identify which six non-playoff qualifiers from 2008 (three in each conference) will take a step up and make the postseason in 2009, and which six 2008 playoff teams won’t return. Think of it as an extremely early version of who’s hot and who’s not, well before the first whistle of this season is even blown.
OAKLAND, Calif. — Jack Cust was excused for missing most of Trevor Cahill‘s first major league win.
While Cahill and the Athletics were in the field, Oakland’s designated hitter was in the video room. It paid off when he hit a grand slam that helped the A’s beat the Texas Rangers 9-4 on Thursday.
“I know it kind of stinks but I did see some of his strikeouts,” Cust said.
