Do What Tastes Right

What’s the perfect topping for a bowl of chili? Some prefer the salty crunch of Saltine crackers. Others may reach for a pile of shredded cheddar. A dollop of sour cream does the trick for other chili aficionados. However, for one man, the optimal ingredient is something that most won’t find at the grocery.

According to a Knoxville Police Department report, officers stopped a car in Knoxville on June 15 after the driver failed to use a turn signal. After a K9 alert, the vehicle was searched. What the police found was a bowl of Wendy’s chili with an unusual condiment: two white rock-like objects. Salt? Nope. Onions? Keep guessing. A field test found the substance to be positive for cocaine.

Whether you’re someone who likes their chili with minimal additions or lots of toppings, a better choice might be something that’s legal to consume.

Well, maybe he used the cocaine to make sure that he'd reach the bathroom in time when the chili came back to haunt him. It works about that fast.
