I just heard an update about the "finger in the chili" story from San Jose. It turns out that the woman that reported the "digit" in her chili has had her house searched by authorities in Las Vegas.
The police didn't say what they found during the search, but they indicated they believe the finger could belong to her recently deceased aunt. Let's see: What would the odds be that this woman travels to San Jose, buys some chili and finds a finger in it that just happens to belong to her aunt? A billion to one?
Odds are, though, that this lady will need an attorney, a good one, before long.
This is just about as wacky as you can get.
