Juice is Bad

Ntp 21 June 2007 15

In a cautionary tale both the Brisbane Times and the SBS World News service carry the story about a 60 year old woman getting burns to her throat by drinking a expired bottle of juice at her workplace in Fyshwick.

Just goes to show that if you leave apple juice long enough it doesn’t turn into cider after all.

so a fill in was pilfering the fridge for free stuff… who’d have thunk it…

There’s a moral to this story.

Speculation and conspiracies are very easy to come up with when you don’t have any of the facts.

They also come undone when you look at the very long set up (and the fact that the victim wasn’t a madame but a fill in receptionist)

Whatever the case, a burnt alimentary system is terrible.

sounds like an upset employee though.. am I the only one who heard on the news that this was at a brothel? a 60/yo? maybe an upset gal getting back at her Madame? speculation?

Weird to flog some horrible old leftover food in the fridge. I’m one of those people who goes through work fridges periodically and chucks out all the rotting stuff, plus tubs of yogurt and juice and whatnot that’s past its use by date.

Poor woman though, it’s destroyed her alimentary system, she’s toast even if she survives. She’ll be injesting nourishment through a tube, not through her mouth/oesophagus.

I always knew juice was bad for you. If only she’d stuck to coke instead!

Drinking a bottle of anything manufactured before 2004, that has been sitting in the fridge of a whore house in fyshwick.. = not a good idea. Just another way to leave working there with a rash down your throat.

The dangers of fruit juice. I found out the hard way just how dangerous those small bottle of OJ from Wiffens at the Fyshwick Markets can be. Accidently left a half full bottle in my car (parked in my garage) over the weekend. Didn’t use the car. Found on Monday morning that the bottle had exploded. Spent hours having car cleaned and fermented explosive OJ removed.

Stuff smelt pretty caustic too and it was only three days old. If this woman had a bottle as old as you say thumper, that’s pretty bad.

I heard that it was a year old and the top was still sealed.

Bizarre whatever the case.

from the bt article they are suggesting tampering.

I doubt that it’s a fitting punishement since it’s likely she’ll never be able to eat solid food ever again … if she lives.

Ahhh, a fitting punishment to the ever increasing crime of drinking something that doesn’t belong to you in the office fridge…
