Now that’s a cup of joe that will put some hair on your ass.
According to Gawker, a New Brunswick man says a cup of coffee he recently purchased and consumed had a dead mouse lying at the bottom of it.
Canadian Man Finds Dead Mouse in Cup of McDonald’s Coffee
“I always take the lid off to get my last sip,” Ron Morais told a local news station. “And when I took the lid off, there was a little bit of a surprise in my coffee cup.”
Not only did Morais find the dead rodent in what was left of his coffee and backwash mix, but he also noticed “a few little, shall we say, presents, that the mouse had dropped.”
If Morais is looking to score some coin from Mousegate, he’s in luck, as several of his coworkers witnessed the moment he popped the lid.
“‘Oh my God, there’s a mouse in my coffee,’ is what he says,” said Jennifer LaHaye. “I turn around and look at him. The first time I looked, I actually looked and it’s really, he’s not joking.”
No word on how many times Morais barfed after realizing he downed a coffee tainted with dead mouse shit or if he’s given the mouse corpse a pet name, but “Early Retirement” sounds about right, eh?
