A woman called police over a potentially dangerous snake found in her salad greens, but it turned out to just be a worm.

A woman in Germany who encountered an unknown, snakelike creature in her bowl of salad was so distressed that she called emergency services this week, but when police responded they discovered it was not a snake at all.

According to The Local, a young woman actually called emergency services this week when she discovered a long, mysterious animal slithering around her bowl of salad. She told the dispatcher that it was alive and looked like a snake, and she found it “swimming” around in the sink when she washed the salad greens she had just bought from the supermarket.

The woman described the slithery interloper as being five or six centimeters long, but when emergency services asked, she said she could not send a photo because her Internet was not functioning at the time.

Out of an abundance of caution, police went to the woman’s house to investigate the call, and they discovered that the “snake” was not poisonous, dangerous, or even really a snake. It was just an ordinary garden worm.

Officers reportedly let the worm go outside.

Black hotel employee’s response to woman who calls him the N-word goes viral: 'There's a Best Western next door'

A black hotel employee filmed himself discussing with a woman why he’s denying her service after the woman called him a "f***ing” N-word on the phone.

Craig Brooks, a 26-year-old guest service employee at a Holiday Inn Express in Austin, Texas, spoke with INSIDER about the incident.

After taking the unnamed woman's credit card information to book a room, she said she would be there within 10 minutes. Brooks responded he would see her then, but didn't hang up the phone right away.

According to Brooks, the woman said "that f***ing [n-word]" while still on the line.

When the woman showed up at the hotel, he calmly explained to her — in a now-viral video, which he filmed on Snapchat and uploaded to Twitter — that she would not be permitted to stay at the hotel.

"I need to stay here. My mother died," the woman says in the video.

"I understand that, but you called me a f***ing [n-word]," Brooks responded.

The woman said she was sorry several times, to which the employee explained, "You weren't sorry when you said it to me on the phone. It's above me now."

Brooks had already phoned the hotel's management and informed them of the woman's racist remark. He was told that the hotel has a zero-tolerance policy of racism towards employees.

The rest of the woman's family had already booked and checked into rooms at the hotel, but with his employer's permission, he directed the woman to another nearby inn.

"There's a Best Western next door," he explained.

The video, initially shared on Sunday, resulted in both "Best Western" and "It's above me" to trend on Twitter on Monday. Naturally, social media users pulled through with some epic jokes regarding the two phrases.

"This is the first time I can remember I've been called a racial slur," Brooks told INSIDER. "I'm in Austin, and Austin is very liberal so you don't have to deal with stuff like that. it amazes me that people still think like that and it's 2019."

Brooks did not immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s requests for comment.


2. Taro Root

Alternate Names: Cocoyam, arrow root, kalo, dasheen, sato imo, gabi, patra, woo tau

Characteristics: Native to Malaysia, this rough-textured, hairy brown tuber is used in cuisines as varied as Polynesian and Indian. (A close relative, the yautia, is found in African and Caribbean cuisines and is treated like a potato.) It's one of the more nondescript and bland Asian root vegetables, but that makes it the perfect conduit for strong flavors. In Hawaii, taro is used to make traditional poi, a gelatinous dish made from steaming and pounding the root into a pulp. In Indian cooking, slices of taro root are seasoned with spices and then fried. And although taro is consumed throughout the year in Chinese cuisine (you can find taro cakes at dim sum), it is especially popular during Lunar New Year's celebrations, when you can find taro-filled moon cakes.

A Popcorn Salad Recipe Went Viral With 3M Views On Twitter, Yet For All The Wrong Reasons

Lukas Garnelis and
Jurgita Dominauskaitė

There is a Latin maxim &ldquoDe gustibus non est disputandum&ldquo literally meaning that you don&lsquot argue about taste, but more broadly implicating that everyone&lsquos preferences are subjective and they can&lsquot be right or wrong.

Well, people on the internet would challenge that notion as they are showing no mercy for a popcorn salad that went viral. Chef Molly Yeh shared a recipe which includes popcorn and mayonnaise and the internet is horrified. People are expressing their disgust and even calling the salad a crime against humanity.

A video of TV chef Molly Yeh making popcorn salad with mayonnaise went viral and people are disgusted by the dish

Molly Yeh is an American cookbook author, blogger, and host of the Food Network cooking show Girl Meets Farm. Most of her recipes are inspired by her Jewish and Asian roots and her Midwestern surroundings as she moved from Brooklyn to a farm on the North Dakota-Minnesota border.

Usually her recipes are quite liked and look mouth-watering. If you go on any of her social media platforms, you can find delicious-looking snacks, main courses, and desserts. But people on the internet are agreeing that the popcorn salad should not have been made.

The ingredients include mayonnaise, popcorn, and vegetables

While she is making the salad, Molly explains that &ldquoPopcorn salad is one of those classic Midwestern dishes that you would often find in a church basement potluck.&rdquo According to her, the typical ingredients are vegetables, popcorn, and mayonnaise some people put fish in it. She admits that hearing what goes into the salad, it sounds weird, but is confident saying that the final dish tastes really good.

Molly&rsquos recipe includes vegetables like peas, carrots, and shallots whipped up with mayonnaise, sour cream, cider vinegar, sugar, and Dijon mustard. It all gets mixed with a pile of popcorn and the plate is finished off by putting watercress and some celery leaves on top.

The chef said that it was a typical Midwestern dish

Molly Yeh describes the salad as &lsquocrunchy&rsquo but people have a hard time believing it, imagining that it should be soggy

The chef does a taste test and is nodding to us expressing her approval. To describe the texture of the salad, she uses the word &lsquocrunchy&rsquo however, people on the internet don&rsquot believe that and imagine the popcorn being soggy, which is what makes the salad not edible for them. However, Molly says in the video &ldquoThe texture of the popcorn in the salad is so weirdly good, I just can&rsquot get enough of it.&rdquo

Molly had some friends over so they also got to taste the salad. One of the friends said that she&rsquod never heard of a salad with popcorn, but for her, &ldquoit&rsquos surprisingly delicious,&rdquo while other people on the internet, even those from Midwest, where the salad supposed to be a classic dish, were surprised to hear about such an unusual food combination.
