Dead Mouse Found in BBQ Chips

Back when Doritos had those 3D chips I ate one that was pure ash. I was popping them in my mouth without looking and when I bit that one and it crumbled into ash I stopped eating them. Doritos also stopped making those chips soon after... :-? ;-7

Personally, if I find something off in my food, particularly something dead, I lose my appetite for that particular food for the moment. I'd call it something to get upset about.

The Dorito was made of ash, or it had ash inside it? Are you sure they were just Wild Xtreme Rush Nacho Ash Ranch flavor? :-D

Seriously though, those 3D Doritos were gross.

I quoted your text and modified it, making it seem as if you had said something you really hadn't said. It's a time-honored tradition here at the Cafe. Let's all have a bit of a chuckle over this, shall we? ;-D ;-D ;-) :-b B-) :-D


Fixed. O:-)

Ah, here it is!

MONUMENT, Colorado (AP) - A dead mouse that a student found inside a bag of potato chips he bought at lunch likely chewed its way into the bag after the chips were delivered to the school, a Frito-Lay spokeswoman said Monday.

An eighth-grader found the mouse Wednesday. At the time, school officials said his claim appeared credible.

The bag and the mouse were sent to Frito-Lay headquarters in Texas, where employees found a "chew hole" they believe the mouse made to get into the bag, company spokeswoman Aurora Gonzalez said.

An independent veterinary pathologist concluded the mouse had been dead from one to three days before the student found it, Gonzalez said. The bag had been delivered to the school six days earlier.

"It seems most likely that it would have been at the school" that the mouse got into the bag, she said.

A school district spokeswoman did not immediately return a call.

The district temporarily pulled all chips from its vending machines and lunch lines after the discovery.


Case closed as far as I'm concerned. Turns out the school is a cesspool of rodent infestation.

Here's an idea then; check your bags for "chew holes." Or better yet, don't eat Doritos.

Not that I necessarily believe the boy but "found a chew hole" sounds like a crock to me. How come nobody noticed the chew hole beforehand? The mystery deepens.

I thought the same thing, and I was equally skeptical when I saw it was the Frito-Lay people who made the claim, but the independent pathologist confirmed it was dead for 3 days. Even if you don't believe the "independent pathologist" you'd have to reason that the mouse would have been dead for at least week and likely considerably gross and disgusting prior to even opening the bag.

I'm still open to the idea that the kid planted it, but I think the chew-hole theory makes more sense at this point. Mice can squeeze into some tiny holes and kids are pretty dumb. I'm willing to wait for an independent conclusion though.

That is what I expected they would find out.

I'm half-joking here so don't take me too seriously... But how is it that this mouse manages to Houdini himself into the bag but can't get back out? Now I realize that mice can compress their bodies in order to squeeze through hard surfaces (such as base boards) but I am having trouble with the mental image of a mouse getting into a tiny hole in a cellophane? bag. ;-)

His tiny mouse belly was probably filled to almost bursting with those crappy, fattening chips. :-b

I bet the kid planted it, probably to impress some girl. Whenever I hear a story like this I think of the hypodermic needles appearing in sealed Pepsi cans.
