Man Knifed By Sandwhich

by | 19th, July 2008

TO New York, where John Agnesini is risking life and innards on a Cold Cut Trio Subway sandwich.

No slight on the gut-stretching loaf of “sliced turkey, bologna, turkey ham and turkey salami with your choice of fresh vegetables and condiments served on freshly baked bread”. As if.

More a comment on the 7-inch (18-cm) blade baked into the foot-long snack.

Cynics may wonder what would kill your first, the sandwich or the blade, and if, indeed, finding a knife in your foot-long is the healthier alternative to eating the Subway Meatball Marinara?

To the matter in hand, and John Agnesini says he had already taken a few bites from the sandwich when he spotted the knife jutting out from the bread’s crust. With no time to waste he did what any good American would do: he filed a lawsuit, seeking $1million.

“If I didn’t look at it, I don’t know what would have happened,” says Agnesini. “That’s the last thing you think about a sandwich you eat all the time.”

Anorak wonders how much of the knife Agnesini would have eaten before he realised his usual meal had changed, become a little crunchier, little less doughy?

Says Subway spokesman Kevin Kane:

“At Subway restaurants, we take food safety and customer comments very seriously. We are aware of the complaint made and are investigating the facts alleged. As a pending legal matter, we cannot discuss this matter further.”

Of course it may all be a satire on the consumer culture, and Subway diners may care to examine their grub for signs of forks, knives, napkins, tables, chairs and sparking conversation…
