POLICE are searching for whoever puts things like half a sausage back into the fridge.
The manhunt follows ongoing reports of annoyingly insignificant food items like a half-eaten Muller Corner and a thumbnail-sized piece of cheese being left in refrigerators to be ignored until they begin to smell.
Bath-based Tom Logan said: “Last night I opened my fridge to find a bowl containing nine baked beans. What sort of freak decants a small mouthful of beans into a bowl and covers it with clingfilm?
“Also there was a tub of butter that was empty unless you had an electron microscope that could locate the remaining molecules of spread.
“Whoever is doing this, they must be found and they must be punished.”
A police spokesman said: “One poor woman found a single foil-wrapped sardine stashed behind a tub of Philadelphia. God only knows what the perpetrator planned to do with it.”
He added: “If you are thinking of putting a minuscule amount of food back into someone’s fridge, think very hard about whether you should just put it in your mouth.”
