I heard someone say this on 810 this morning and googled it when I got into work.

I did a quick search on here and didn't find anything so sorry if repost.

DALLAS -- Dallas Cowboys passing game coordinator Todd Haley is suing a suburban McDonald's after claiming his wife and their family's au pair found a dead rat in their salad.

The lawsuit filed Thursday in state district court seeks $1.7 million in damages, The Dallas Morning News reported on its Web site.

In addition to Haley, who got in a well-publicized shouting match with Terrell Owens earlier this month, the suit was also filed on behalf of his wife, Christine, and the family's live-in babysitter, Kathryn Kelley.

The dead rodent, believed to be a juvenile roof rat, was about 6 inches long and was found on its back with its mouth opened, Scott Casterline, a spokesman for the family, told The Associated Press.

He said the women didn't find the rat until taking the salad home to eat, and that a manager from the McDonald's "didn't offer any comfort" after driving to their house to see the rodent. The suit was filed after the restaurant didn't follow through on promises "to make things right," he said.

"The family needs closure," Casterline told The Associated Press. "It came to a point where you have to draw a line."

A message left for McDonald's Corp. spokesman Walt Riker on Thursday evening was not immediately returned. Ken Lobato, owner-operator of the McDonald's in Southlake, told the newspaper that he hadn't seen the suit and couldn't respond.

"Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our customers," he said. "We maintain the strictest quality standards. We take these matters seriously and are conducting a full investigation to get all the facts.

"In my years as an owner-operator, I've never seen anything like this."

According to the lawsuit, Christine Haley and Kelley had eaten part of the salad purchased June 5 at a McDonald's in Southlake before the dead rodent was uncovered.

The women became violently ill and endured long-lasting physical injuries, the lawsuit said. Christine Haley, who was nursing, states she had to feed her baby with formula.

In the Cowboys' loss against Philadelphia on Oct. 8, Owens was seen screaming at Haley on the sideline. Owens later said his relationship with Haley was ruined, but then said after his three-touchdown game against the Texans on Oct. 15 that there was mutual respect between the two.

Let me guess, Haley eventually moves on to Arizona where he takes over Offensive Coordinator duties and after losing in the Superbowl, he ultimately takes over Head Coaching duties for Kansas City after the departure of Herm Edwards in 2009.

You do realize that in the first sentence it says "Dallas Cowboys passing game coordinator" and not "Chiefs Head Coach" ......

I realize that our search function leaves quite a bit to be desired, but isn't this some kind of record for the longest time between post/repost?

He eventually leads a resurgence in KC leading the team to back to back super bowl wins in 2012-2013.

FYP...

You guys are knocking this new salad idea from McDonalds without even trying it.

You're as bad as my grandkids.

Rats in salads, mice in asses, where will it end? Tossed rodent salad perhaps? Jam covered muskrats?

I just had a nightmare-ish thought. What if a giant rat shit into a box of raisin bran? You wouldn't even know...

probably depends on how much of it ends up in your two scoops.

Asses in salads seems to be the natural progression.
