He was eating his order of steak and spinach from the Bull and Bear Steak House when he says he made a disturbing find.

Sans-Claus spoke exclusively to New York City television station WABC claiming, "I had it in my mouth, chewed it and nearly swallowed it," said Sans-Claus. He adds, "This is so disgusting, I've felt sick ever since."

This diner says he rinsed his mouth with brandy then went to the bathroom to vomit. He says the hotel then called an ambulance.

So what was it?

Sanz-Claus claims the doctor in the emergency room cut the object in half and confirmed it was a used tampon. New York Presbyterian confirmed he was treated at the hospital.

Sanz-Claus says he has not been able to sleep or eat since the episode.

Sanz-Claus fears he could contract a deadly disease. He was tested for hepatitis at the hospital and was told to be tested for AIDS in two months.

WABC-TV obtained the following statement from a company spokesperson of Hilton Hotels (owner of the Waldorf): "

I always order my tampons medium-well just to be safe. Never tried it with steak or spinach but that would make me want to puke too.

The Waldorf Astoria released the following statement:

We are conducting an internal investigation, but have reason to believe that the circumstances surrounding this incident are highly suspicious. At this time we are not at liberty to provide any additional details.
Hmmm...this story can't be found on any "real" news sites. I suspect that even if it is true, it's probably another Wendy's finger-in-the-fries story.

No, I usually close both eyes before pulling the trigger.


BTW...that story was so disgusting, I may be fasting for a few days.

You might slip a small bug by me in the salad, but I certainly check carefully enough that I would notice a tampon, a finger, a dead mouse, etc.

I agree the story is (highly) suspicious.

It's pretty unlikely a tampon would remain hidden all the way to my mouth.

Good point. A better question might be, "Do you smell what you are about to eat?"
