A thumb in the chili should be a wake-up call to ‘go veggie’

Dear Editor,
As if meat-based chili wasn’t gross enough already, a woman
recently found a human finger in her chili at a Wendy’s in San
Jose. Mmmm, yummy!
Dear Editor,

A severed finger is certainly vile, and a health hazard, but so is meat. Animal flesh contains enough artery-clogging fat and cholesterol, hormones and antibiotics, and potentially deadly bacteria such as E. coli, to make anyone sick to their stomach.

Besides, animal products already contain traces of blood and pus, fecal matter, rat hairs, and other unappetizing odds and ends; finding a finger is not that big of a stretch.

Fortunately, there is an easy way to avoid all disgusting, unhealthy animal products – go vegetarian. Visit PETA’s Web site at GoVeg.com for a free vegetarian starter kit, and leave the rotting corpses behind.
