Thick as pig shit

Teenager claims her Pot Noodle was staring back at her!

Kelly Hoggarth was eating a beef and tomato Pot Noodle when she suddenly turned away in horror.

OMG! What could possibly have happened?
She is convinced an eyeball was staring back at her from her plate and has vowed never to eat a Pot Noodle again.

A eyeball? In a pot noodle? I would like to have seen that. Oh, hang on, there's a picture of the 'eyeball':

It's a bit of a tomato! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha *gulp*

While, it could be the end of a tomato stalk, Kelly is convinced it is an eyeball - possibly from a rodent.

Sorry chuck, but your own belief does not make a reality. If this is what's coming out of modern schools, we really are doomed.

The offending matter has now been sent to Unilever who will investigate what it is and Kelly expects a decision later this month.

I bet Unilever are pissing themselves laughing. "After extensive tests, we've concluded that it is a tomato. A common ingredient in Beef and Tomato Pot Noodles.

This is the best bit:

“I’d put the Pot Noodle on a plate and was half-way through when I saw something that did not seem right,” said Kelly, 18, of Brewery Street, Boothtown, Halifax.

You don't eat Pot Noodles off a plate. Were you using a knife and fork too?

She took a photograph and said her friends’ were also wondering what it was and they told her it could possibly be an eyeball from a rodent.

Have these kids ever seen a tomato? I wonder what they would make of a cauliflower? Brains?

I won’t be buying any more Pot Noodles.

All the more for me *Yummy noises*

I think that the lass should be shown a REAL rodent's eye-ball, just so that she can recognise one in future.
I'll dig one out for her if you like, once I've caught the rodent, that is.

Just as well it was Chicken & whatever it is, as she could have had big cock staring right out at her. : )

I'm willing to bet the friends were pretty sure of what it really was but spotted a good opportunity for a wind up!

As for the bit at the end of the article saying how Pot Noodle had been made "healthier" in 2006 by cutting salt... WTF? What's this got to do with Rats (or lack thereof) in the recipe? Couldn't resist getting a mention in could they? They've obviously never heard of hyponatraemia either.

Was going to have a Rustlers burger for lunch tomorrow but a Pot Noodle might be called for instead. Better get it quick before they start pulling them off the shelves too.

Not if their idea of haute cuisine is a plateful of Pot Noodle, no...

I was waiting in line at a Chinese takeaway a few years ago. A couple came in with a plate and proceeded to complain bitterly that there was an earwig in their meal.

A Chinese guy (there's a surprise) came out from the back shop and looked at the plate and the offending earwig. It's a bit ginger he said. I didn't know earwigs could be ginger but there you go.

The couple won't let him take the plate away. they wanted their money back and they would be giving the plate to the council environmental health dept to look at.

The Chinese guy gave them their money back which include four meals not just the one they had brought back.

The couple left.

There were maybe half a dozen or so people in the queue. Not one person left. We all just ordered our food, waited on it, then took it home and ate it.

Steve - I think she should be made to eat it!

Bucko The Moose said...

Anon - True. There was a picture in the article.

Humph - Ha!

Bucko The Moose said...

Matt - Yeah, they could have been taking the piss. I'm leaning towards them being just as thick as her though.

I wondered about that salt thing too, it didn't seem to fit the rest of the story, did it.

Bucko The Moose said...

Julia - Yep. I still can't get my head around the idea of eating a Plate Noodle.

Bucko The Moose said...

tedioustantrums - I would like to have seen what the health dept concluded.
Sounds like the Chinese were very patient
