business news in context, analysis with attitude

• A Las Vegas couple that admitted to planting a severed human finger in a bowl of Wendy’s chili in hopes of getting a big settlement from the fast feeder was sentenced to a long prison term yesterday – 12 years for the husband and nine years for the wife. They pleaded guilty to extortion after an investigation revealed the plot.

Wendy’s reportedly decided not to seek restitution for its losses once the couple agreed not to seek a book, movie or television deal.
