Salad days

Mrs Hughley was about to bite into her burger when her husband, sitting beside her, noticed what looked to be blood splattered on the inside of the burger's wrapper.

"I looked over because my wife was complaining they'd forgotten the lettuce. And I see this splatter of blood ..."

The couple found what appeared to be blood - still wet - splattered on the bottom of the wrapper, on one of the corners, and soaked into the bottom bun of the burger.

Rest assured: nothing is happening in New Zealand. This burger bloodbath was the Herald's lead story on Saturday.

Is there a connexion between the missing lettuce and the bloody bun? I think we should be told.

"Burger King spokeswoman Rachel Allison said the chef had given himself a paper-cut on the burger wrapper, and had not noticed he was bleeding."

Honestly, that beggars all credibility.
