Dutch, U.S. authorities investigating needles in airline sandwiches

Dutch authorities have joined the FBI in conducting criminal investigations into the discovery of needles in six sandwiches aboard four Delta Air Lines flights from Amsterdam to the United States, a military police spokesman in the Netherlands said Tuesday.

One person was injured when he bit into a sandwich containing a needle, Delta and Dutch officials said.

That passenger, James Tonjes, said he thought the object was a toothpick at first.

"When I pulled it out, then I found out it was a needle," he said Tuesday.

Tonjes said he has been placed on medication to prevent HIV.

    What psycho? Hmmm, lets see. If the worlds drugs were metal, what nation would be the magnet? (based on the idea that this Delta flight was US bound, and the law of supply and DEMAND)
    Don't everyone answer at once and clog the thread. ty

    Sort of reminds me of the two needles and condom-wrapped sausage that fell on the floorboard of Marina Navratilova's Porsche 959. (there are only two of these still world class performance German rockets in Colorado. This old man worked on both)

      Sort of reminds me that there is a big need for more asylums out there not less.

    Martina? She ordered an AIDS resistant condom once. All we had in stock were French Ticklers and and condoms with big knobs on them. So she ordered a truckload of each. "We'll either tickle the aids virus until it laughs itself to death, or run-over them with knobbies" she said, adding her usual order for 50 footlongs. LMAO. (sometimes even I crack myself up!) True about the 959s though. 🙂

      So the only thing true about any of the above fairy tales is that you worked on two 959's?
      Uh huh.
      As I thought.

  10. Ahkmed the Terror Guy

    ...and "Obama guy" say he is Christian. His family line has been traced back to Arab-African slavemasters who forced President Obama's ancestors to convert to Islam under penalty of death and so is why so many black people have been born muslim.
    And so if Obama's family had been Israeli-African, obviously he wouldn't be a jew. He would have converted to Christianity. (duh)

    @ Jose
    I'm sure this worst drought to hit us in the past 25 years is muslims doing somehow. What do ya say?
    Also 60 million children going hungry every day, poverty rising, fiscal mess, 15 trillion dollar debt and rising, politicians gone bonkers, Washington in the grip of war hysteria so on and so forth.
    You should be up there on the Hill with them we need more like you.
