“He taken it out of his mouth so when he did, it pulled aside the batter – you could view the blue roll inside, ” Henderson said, according to the Daily Mail.

Henderson said that realizing Oliver had bitten into a paper towel was worse than if it experienced just been bad chicken.

“If it was bad chicken they might have just had a bad batch or some thing, ” she said. “But the blue roll could have been used for anything – it could have bleach or even disinfectant on it … Had somebody wiped their hands on it, experienced it been used to wipe the floor? ”

KFC investigated the incident and, in May, delivered Henderson an apology letter, detailing

All of us take food quality and hygiene very seriously and unfortunately, about this extremely rare occasion, our eating place failed to meet the high standards that will both we and our clients expect.

We have retrained staff on our stringent food preparation techniques at this store to ensure this doesn’t take place again.

The company also offered Henderson a free meal.

Artist Specializes in Sculpting Nature with a Chainsaw


Mark Tyoe is a talented chainsaw artist and the co-owner of Wintergreen Knoll Chainsaw sculptures in the Adirondack Mountains of Upstate New York. He runs the business enterprise along with his wife Linda; together, they sell Mark’s unique chainsaw carvings that he’s been making since the 1990’s. Mark is really good at transforming a solid block of wood into a wonderful sculpture, using nothing but a chainsaw.

“Everything I do upon my carvings is with a chainsaw, ” he said. “I’m kind of a purist about using a single tool. ” A chainsaw can be hardly the ideal tool for performers, so it’s really a wonder that Mark manages to use one to make such delicate details. He doesn’t grind or sand, and he doesn’t use screws, nails or paint.

Being an ANNOYING PERSON is now a crime


 
Every day I spring out of bed at six in the morning intending to spread sweetness and light all day.
And then idiots happen.
You know the feeling. One moment you’re Mother Teresa and then you’re Shiva, Destroyer of Worlds.
***
Example: Mr X (not his real name) was TWO HOURS LATE for dinner.
When we finally started eating, he said: “This meat’s overcooked.”
Now, answer honesty: Would it not be totally morally justified to use the steak knife I was holding to remove this person from the human gene pool?  
***
Lucky for me there was good news in the newspaper the following morning. Governments around the world are making it an actual CRIME to be an annoying person.
Someone has been reading my thoughts again (probably those NSA people).
There are now 5,000 laws on annoying behavior in statutes in the US, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Many are in New York municipal ordinances, which is weird, since loads of annoying people live there, including Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Tyra “Next Top Model” Banks.
It’s only a matter of time before someone makes a citizen’s arrest. “Tyra Banks, you are under arrest for being incredibly annoying for 20 seasons.”
(That should be good for eight-to-ten without parole.)
***
In most Asian countries, being unbelievably annoying is not illegal (which is obvious from looking at Asian leaders) except in the Philippines, where “unjustly vexatious” behavior is an offence.
In most Asian countries, if people are being annoying, police stomp around waving sticks and everybody flees. (This is the Asian version of a free democratic society.)              
 ***
A law against being annoying in public was approved by the UK parliament recently and sent to the House of Lords (so cute how they all live in one house).
They vetoed it, which was no surprise since Lords themselves are horribly annoying, with their castles and silly titles (does “Lord Privy Seal” mean what it says, as in Lord Toilet Sea-Mammal?)      
The aptly-named Lord Dear explained that there was a whole category of people who are perceived as annoying, but are actually key elements of a healthy society, such as political demonstrators, street preachers, carol singers and nudists.
I reluctantly admit he’s got a point there, since his list sounds remarkably like the cast of a typical dinner party at my place.
***
Yet rather than ditching the whole law, they should have criminalized only extreme cases of being annoying.
Some folk are annoying on a GLOBAL SCALE (Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Lance Armstrong, Miley Cyrus, Dennis Rodman, etc).
***
But for me, the most irritating folk are those who are consistently annoying in a low level way, and thus cannot be justifiably killed with a steak knife.
One guy I know posts Facebook updates saying things like: “Here I am, back in my kid-leather armchair at the airport first class lounge, which is like a second home to me now. I would be much happier at the airport noodle shop.”
And I want to scream at him in capital letters: “Well why don’t you go to the airport noodle shop then instead of paying a year of my salary to fly first class?”
But instead, my revenge is to scroll up without pressing “like”.
Take that.
Pretty pathetic but that’s all we have these days.
