WORKERS at a McDonald’s have been plunged into chaos after somebody ordered a Filet-O-Fish.
It is the first time anyone has chosen the oily, mayonnaise-slathered fish object since 1991 when a very drunk man mistakenly thought he was in a chippy.
McDonald’s worker Nikki Hollis said: “I was like ‘what?’. I even got him to write it down just to be sure I wasn’t hallucinating. I told him I’d have to go and get the manager.”
Staff at the York branch of McDonald’s considered phoning the police, but after consulting with head office it was confirmed that the only Filet-O-Fish in the UK would be helicoptered from its special underground containment unit in Halifax.
Hollis added: “When it arrived, it was the first time any of us had seen a Filet-O-Fish. There was a tense moment as I nearly put a gherkin on it and somebody screamed ‘no!’.”
However purchaser Roy Hobbs said: “The first bite tasted okay but then I looked inside the bap, which is always a mistake. There is a saying, ‘if you look into the Filet-O-Fish for long enough, the Filet-O-Fish looks into you’.
“I’m not eating that and I want my money back.”
