I don't know what they eat at the ministry...

After reading this I can't even start guessing.

A Slovenian woman who found a mouse foot in a jar of pickles was shocked to be told it was "completely normal".

Ministry spokeswoman Vivijan Potocnik said: "It is completely normal in big factories to have mice wandering around, and yes, every now and then they get caught amongst the machines and do get bottled, seasoned, preserved and even make it in one piece to consumers. During the preservation process even traces of any salmonella bacteria are eliminated in food. A mice-foot therefore could be classified as a special additive to the pickles."
Shouldn't they charge extra for the foot then?

Next time you tour Slovenia, check you restaurant bills carefully for the extras...
