    Couple plead guilty in Wendy's case
    Woman claimed to have found fingertip in chili in extortion plot

    Anna Ayala leaves a San Jose, California, courtroom Friday after pleading guilty.

    SAN JOSE, California (AP) -- A Nevada couple pleaded guilty Friday to all charges related to planting a human fingertip in a bowl of Wendy's chili in a scheme to extort money from the fast food restaurant chain.

    Anna Ayala, 39, and Jaime Placencia, 43, pleaded guilty to conspiring to file a false claim and attempted grand theft. The Dublin, Ohio-based Wendy's International Inc. claimed the scheme cost it $2.5 million in lost sales because of bad publicity.

    A search for the finger's owner eventually led to one of Placencia's co-workers, who lost it in an industrial accident in Las Vegas, Nevada, police said.

    I think the finger in the chili would have added a lot of flavour to it. I hear it is high in fat and sugars, however :D

    The special tonight is ass
    From: Reuters From correspondents in Beijing
    September 08, 2005

    The cat is out of the bag at a restaurant in northeast China that had been serving donkey meat spiked with tiger urine in pricey dishes advertised as endangered Siberian tigers.

    Local media in Heilongjiang province got wind the restaurant was offering stir-fried dishes and medicinal liquor made from tiger meat and bones, sparking local police and health inspectors to pounce, the China Daily said today.
    "After inspection, the owner confessed that the so-called tiger meat was donkey meat that had been dressed with tiger urine to give the dish a 'special' flavour," the newspaper said.

    The restaurant had been charging as much as $131 a dish for the illegal, "rare" fare, tapping into traditional Chinese belief that tiger meat has aphrodisiacal properties.

    The restaurant was shut down and fined.

    The director of the nearby Hengdaohezi Siberian Tiger Park, China's largest centre for breeding the highly endangered animals, reassured the public there was no way meat from its big cats had made its way to the dinner table, the newspaper said.


    Only a few hundred Siberian tigers are believed to be alive in the wild in their native habitats of northern China, southern Russia and parts of North Korea.
    The report did not explain where the tiger urine had come from or how it was collected.

    SAN JOSE, California (AP) -- A couple who planted a severed finger in a bowl of Wendy's chili in a scheme to extort money from the fast-food chain were sentenced Wednesday to prison terms of at least nine years.

    Anna Ayala, 40, who said she bit into the digit, was sentenced to nine years. Her husband, Jaime Plascencia, 44, who obtained the finger from a co-worker who lost it in a workplace accident, was sentenced to more than 12 years

    Now that's a good sentence. Not because of the sick humour in it, but the fact that Wendy's sales dropped due to negative publicity, which could have had a major impact on *genuine* claims, plus what about all those poor workers getting laid off, that's the biggest loss of this case. :thumbd:

    These two morons deserved that sentence IMO, but geeze, where one sentence like that is appropriate, a lot more of really bad acts get a lighter sentence is the most disturbing to me... like this fool judge...

    CHILD MOLESTER GETS 60 DAYS ~ WHAT A JOKE
    ... and yet gives him 60 days because "he would not get the proper treatment while in jail"...pfffft!

    A lot of enraged people are calling for judge's sacking, and so he should be IMO.
