Man opens bag of Cheese Rings, finds one

From: Northern Territory News January 20, 2010 4:05PM

A DARWIN man has opened a bag of chips and found only one inside.

The Northern Territory News reports Phil Jackson, 54, of Wanguri, brought the Cheese Rings to work with him on Monday.

When he opened the bag he was stunned to find it contained only one solitary ring - barely a mouthful.

"I was devastated," he said. "I put it down to the GFC - money's tight, times are hard."

The innocent snack attack victim had bought them in a large variety pack from a Coles supermarket.

Coles spokesman Jim Cooper said he would get a replacement pack.

"We certainly aren't in the business of giving people a single cheese ring in the packet," Mr Cooper said.

Mr Jackson was philosophical, saying the day before he had gone to KFC to get a five-piece wing pack, only to find six pieces inside.

"What you lose on the hurdy-gurdy you pick up on the roundabout," he said

I almost blogged this one and hesitated...because I knew this is right up your alley!

I was right!

I feel like ringing Phil Jackson of Wanguri to find out if he complained as quickly about getting an extra bit of chicken as he did about the cheese rings.

By the sound of that man's diet, he won't be around much longer to complain. He'll be keeling over from a heart attack.

Yep. WHo has a 5 piece feed anyway? He must be a rotund fellow
