he finger is, of course, a very versatile little digit…
It can say so much in one simple gesture, and yet cover everything from, “Hey, stop staring at my mum’s tit while I’m breastfeeding”, right up to, “Thanks for ignoring me all these years, Grand Ole Opry!”.
According to SuperValu though, the humble finger has a new, previously untold use. It can really add that little extra something to a Happy Pear meal.
An eagle-eyed shopper spotted that little extra ingredient suggestion after checking out The Happy Pear Thai Massaman Curry in SuperValu, and noticed the recommendation of adding a piece of ‘fresh finger’.
The Irish supermarket chain has teamed up with the Greystones foodies to recommend healthier eating options, but the inclusion of human flesh might just be taking their mission a step too far. Especially given that the Pear policy for perfect pecs is strictly vegetarian, baby.
Thankfully, it turns out the finger recommendation was merely a typo, with the intended recipe suggestion actually meant to be a ‘half-thumb sized piece of ginger’.
A spokesperson for SuperValu was quick to try and settle customers’ nerves. “We would like to apologise for our little human error on our most recent recipe leaflets in store. We made a tiny mistake on The Happy Pear’s Massaman Curry recipe. We seriously do not condone putting a half-thumb-sized piece of fresh finger, peeled and finely sliced, into your dish!
“We, of course, meant, GINGER!”
Watch out, redheads!
“We also highly recommend,” finished the pun-tastic SuperValu rep, “that you are careful when slicing and dicing your ingredients – so, watch your fingers please!”
The Flynn twins saw the funny side, of course, simply posting in response, “We forgive”.
