Is this for real?

By S4anta - 21 July 2005 27

I recieved this email this morning;

Don’t go to this restaurant in Dickson EVER !!

Lady’s name (Edited, to save Ssanta’s arse)
Generic Company (Edited, to save Ssanta’s arse)

On Sunday I went to [Upstairs on Woolley st] restaurant in Dickson and found a
cockroach INSIDE my dim sim. My partner was totally grossed out and lost
his appetite for the rest of the day (he had already shoved an entire
dim sim into his mouth before I showed him my special dim sim). We
decided we should inform the ACT health inspectors, not to get anyone in
trouble but to prevent people from getting SICK.

This morning I rang ACT Health Services but I wasn’t sure what good that
would do. I gave them the name of the restaurant, what I found in my
dim sim and the waitresses reaction when I showed her the cockroach.
Anyway, I just received a phone call (3pm) from the health inspector
telling me he had paid the restaurant a surprise visit and found many
cockroaches, dead and alive, in the kitchen. He has issued a notice to
remedy. He also told me he has had to go to this restaurant before about
their toilets. He said that the restaurant was marginal in its standards
and did just enough to stay in business.

What do y’all think?

Good onya Maeliner.

I knew there was a way to link Canberra’s most unfortunate drain on our taxes – that is the green’s deb fosky (factually earning about $100k whilst bludging off our taxes, all the while honest, fair dinkum low income strugglers switch between various places of emergency accommodation for themselves and their kiddies) – and a fictitous restaurant which may or may not have served up quality cockroaches.

I’m sure that deb fosky is so well off now, she doesn’t need to eat steamed cockroaches – she can afford quality food on her $100k public purse; however the strugglers she denies housing must endure steamed cockroches. A protein source I’m sure they’re quite happy to have.

Would you believe this shit just turned up the social news email at work!

Methinks someone has a vendetta against this joint.

But it’s come pretty close. There was a story in the Herald recently about a young guy who ate one on a dare, and ended up in hospital for several months. I’d rather avoid eating cockroaches if I can – you’re welcoe to them kimba.

Eating cockroachers has never killed anyone!

On the bright side, the queue that forms to get in there on Sunday’s is probably going to be shorter for some time.
