What’s Better Than a Mouse in Your Sandwich?

Posted on Oct 16, 2015 by Lisa Ricard Claro   7 Comments | Posted in Observations From the Tub · The Naked Truth

Today’s Observations from the Tub was a toss up between cuteness overload and gross surprises, and because I couldn’t decide, you’re getting a link to both.

First, the gross. How about a mouse in your sandwich? A man in Lincoln City, Oregon was treated to this unappetizing  tidbit at a Subway, and his pal snapped a pic of the rodent curled up pretty as you please dead as a door nail amidst the leafy savoy. Here’s a link if you want to see the photo:  Mouse in Sandwich  The Subway was found free of fault as the unfortunate mouse was determined to have been delivered in a bag of spinach. It gives new meaning to the term “going green.” Ha.

Second, the cute. I found a website called Cute Overload, and they aren’t kidding. Grab your coffee, put on your glasses, and prepare to “Awww…”  your way to fabulous Friday. This website offers up some seriously adorable photos, similar to this one . . .

and this one . . .



Have you ever found anything in your food? The hubster found a dead grasshopper in a bag of salad greens a few months ago. We gagged, tossed the bag, and made a pact never to speak of it again. So of course I’m writing about it here. 🙂

Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend. See you Monday for Pawsitive Pondering!

    I’ll take the cuteness overload. But I will admit that I found a chunk of animal hair in hard salami, and glass in a bottle of Coke. The representative who came out in 1975 said, “You’re tongue would have stopped it. So here’s a voucher for a case of Coke.”

    Good-by game-day subway. When I was in the service, I learned to eat what the cooks were eating.

    I think it was lucky that the mouse was found before the sandwich was served (or at least that’s the way I took it from the video). A year or so ago I found a pretty gross looking potato chip near the bottom of a bag I was eating from. It looked like a hair ball had been fried with the chip. It didn’t totally gross me out because it hadn’t made it to my mouth and I figured any germs were killed during the frying. 🙂 I did email the company and was rewarded with a very nice message explaining the lengths they go to to try and make sure stuff like that doesn’t happen. I also received several coupons for free and discounted products. I considered it a win overall. LOL

    Have a good weekend!

    Gross for sure…can’t think about it at all. In fact, thinking about some of the people and places our food is prepared is enough of a trip without added details! Beautiful weather here but to be little colder tomorrow on parade day. You have a good weekend too!

    Thank you for that hefty dose of cuteness to counteract the gross. Just this week, I met some friends for dinner at a popular taco place, and a friend got a dead fly on her tray. And I once found a chunk of (painted) wood baked into my bread. I wrote to the Brownberry company, and although I used to love their bread, they pretty much accused me of making it up and sent me a coupon. Wrong kind of fiber, Brownberry! And you are really making a case for washing those “pre washed” greens! Bleah!

    I found a black hair in my spring roll and about gagged. I think there were other things too (not in the spring roll, but other food), but I’ve blocked it so as not to be completely grossed out. And I’m either a real slacker (ok, I am) or you’re prolific because I kept scrolling to read all the posts I’ve missed. Love the pic of you and your momma – and you’re right, you have to talk to the people NOW. I did talk to my aunt (my mom’s sister) about my mom because I was too little (12) to even think about those kinds of things. I do journal daily and figure my kids will have more than they want to know about their momma! Ha. I want to say more, but I need to catch up on the rest of the blogs! Hugs.
