While this sounds like a Florida Man sighting, the news attributes it to the whistlestop of Forney, Texas.
Police in Forney say a man bit his friend’s ear off during a fight about 9 p.m. Thursday outside Cowboy Chicken, 780 E. U.S. Highway 80. The fight broke out after the man, of Terrell, began arguing with an employee about receiving chicken enchiladas free of charge.
The man, who was reportedly drunk, became “belligerent” when he was denied free food, according to a police report obtained by inForney.com.
For Mexican food lovers, the enchilada can be the pinnacle of the proper arrangement of tortilla, cheese and meat. Even mediocre enchiladas are hard to find. Good and great enchiladas often require a quest.
Still, knowing full well how powerful an enchilada craving can be, I’m not sure even I would go this far.
Kruiser’s sympathy is apparently matched by the victim, who refused to press charges against his friend:
When his friend removed him from the restaurant, they began fighting…. The man’s friend ran away and when police found him sitting on a curb, a large chunk of his ear was missing and he had blood running down his face.
You know what we’re thinking? We’re thinking, we hope we’re never as hard up for friends as that guy.
Besides, if you like spicy, Thai beats Mexican like a rented mule.
