I know this is not poetry, but I had to share it.

My wife and I were talking about the woman who got nine years for claiming she had a finger in her chili at a Wendy‘s restaurant..
My 13 year old daughter came in about that time and said, “what are you two talking about?” Amanda my daughter has to always know what's going on.

I told Amanda "a woman got 9 years for putting a finger in her chili at Wendy’s, and

that the woman’s boy friend got 12 years for giving her the finger."

Amanda said, “WHAT!”

I said to my wife, “somehow that didn’t come out right.”

We had a big laugh over it.

I heard the news about that as well, but I kept wondering whether that was a real finger they had put into the chilly. If it is real, then whose finger was that?

Was it real? Did the boyfriend cut off his own finger to give to her? If this didn't belong to her boyfriend then whose real finger was it? Did they cut off someone else's finger to put into the chilly?

If the finger is not real, then why bother? They should know that they would get into trouble with the law. What a dumb thing to do!!! They both need more than a finger!!!

That was the part I didn't understand - whose real finger was that? Who cut off whose finger?
