Snail explodes, ruins dinner

ABA Journal has the story online:

Two California men are suing a San Rafael restaurant, claiming a birthday celebration was ruined when escargot they ordered exploded, spewing hot butter on their faces and shirts.

They pursued a lawsuit after the restaurant’s insurer denied their claim. They should have optioned it to the Farrelly brothers.

The story also quotes a chef who says, yes, escargot occasionally explode, which explains why this dish rarely finds its way to the Thanksgiving table.
