Ahh, Good Old Production Line Cooking

From the BBC:

McDonald's fined for bolt in meal
Fast food giant McDonald's has been fined £13,500 after a metal bolt was found in a snack at a West Midlands shopping centre. A customer chewed on the bolt, which was in a sausage and egg McMuffin, at the outlet in Merry Hill in June 2006.

The company pleaded guilty at Dudley Magistrates' Court on Thursday to a charge of producing food which did not meet required standards.

The court heard bolts were missing from a kitchen grill.

Wait for it... but aren't we supposed to get more iron in our diets? Wahey! Boom boom!

There must be some syllabic resonance, as Budleigh (as in Budleigh Salterton, home of Giles Wembley Hogg) is also hillarious sounding.

It just sounds like Eccles rorpling along a sandy path humming tunelessly (if that makes sense).

Are they 100% sure that it wasn't a nut?
We all know how dangerous nuts can be.

Indeed- just ask Cadburys.
