Re: I found a foreign body in a bread roll. What should I do?

The Mrs left a fruity bread roll type thing out for me to enjoy with my coffee this morning, it was pretty good but when I took a second bite I hurt a tooth on something hard. I thought it must be a stone from a fruit but was amazed to find it was a piece of white plastic. I didn't have my glasses, but it looked like a long tooth/fang but it is definitely plastic.

This should definitely not be in a piece of bread and I've no idea how a bakery could have loose bits of plastic lying around......

What should I do? Is there a special office I can complain to?
Poor you, in all these years you've never been the one who got the king? This reminds me of me when I was a child, it was always my brother who got it!

For King's day they put small plastic or ceramic toys or a baby jesus in the cake. Whoever gets the piece with the toy in it is king for a day or wins a prize or whatever.

It's highly likely the OP is talking about that & not finding some random piece of plastic in the cake. But we don't know as he hasn't gotten back to us.

I've heard it used to be coins. However I can't confirm this.

Reading more, it seem the EU has banned this tradition.

There was once a tramp who joined a secret organisation to overthrow an evil dicatator.

The tramp was also a barber.

To decide who should sacrifice their life to kill the dictator, their wives made a cake and hid a coin in one of the pieces. the person who got the piece would have to sacrifice themselves.

But the women, who didn't approve of the plan, put a coin in every piece.

The tramp swallowed his piece, whereas the others all passed the pieces on. The tramp ended up swallowing them all.

I think a movie was made about it.

Are you serious? Is this a reference to something I'm supposed to know? I'm drawing a blank.....

I like the type of cake that has a nude lady inside.

Foreign or not doesn't matter.
Except that it is NOT a lady but a gentlemen !

I am reminded of that song by the Thompson Twins..

If I was King for just one day...

Probably before your time.
