Robin Sandusky, a theatrical agent working in Manhattan, got a disgusting surprise in a kale salad she had gotten delivered from a nearby deli — when she almost bit into a severed lizard head. You know, some places will actually charge you extra to add in a protein. According to the New York Post:

“It was the craziest thing,” she said. “After a few bites, I look down at my fork, and think, ‘Oh, is that a piece of asparagus?’And then I saw that it had eyes, and an arm.”

Sandusky said she has had many salads from the Hell’s Kitchen deli before and never found a reptile in one. “I order from them all the time,” she said. “The same kind of salad at least every day for the last two weeks, and it’s been fine.”

I love how she’s like, well, I’ve never gotten a decapitated lizard head before — as if it’s some kind of common occurrence like getting not enough dressing or a wilted piece of lettuce. I feel worse for the poor lizard, who was probably just chilling out on some kale, living up his baller, worry-free little lizard lifestyle when some assh*le comes along and turns him into salad. Let’s not forget the real victim of the story, here.


New York Post — “Woman Finds Lizard Head In Gourmet Salad.” It’s no “Headless Body in Topless Bar,” but it’ll do.
