Question: What the h is a "beastie" and since when is it used in the paper? Let alone in referencing a rodent head??

"Watson was cooking lunch for two sons Sunday when she said she found a severed rodent head in a can of Allens Cut Green Beans, which had been purchased at a Wal-Mart store in American Fork. Allens spokesman James Phillips said the beastie probably was picked up during the harvest and did not originate in the canning factory. He called it an isolated incident. "

barf. good old taught me that beastie is a noun: "Chiefly literary. a small animal, especially one toward which affection is felt." I FEEL NO AFFECTION FOR RAT HEADS IN MY DINNER.

OH Kathleen. I READ THAT in the PAPER!! I couldn't believe my eyes. Surely, it was a major printing mistake. EWWW. If you think I am going to be able to eat frozen green beans from here on out, think AGAIN!!!!

You've obviously never had rodent's head with green beans. That, my dear, is a beastie treat.
