Waldorf-Astoria Serves 'Steak Surprise' to German Tourist, Allegedly

A tourist who recently dined at the Bull and Bear restaurant inside the Waldorf-Astoria claims that he found something foreign inside of his steak, something so vile and revolting that we can't even bring ourselves to say what it is.

The tourist in question, a German man named Axel Sanz-Claus, says that he dined at the famed restaurant on Friday night, ordering a meal of steak and spinach.

Reports WABC:

Sanz-Claus spoke exclusively to Eyewitness News claiming that hidden in his food was a tampon, a blood soaked tampon.

"I had it in my mouth, chewed it and nearly swallowed it," said Sanz-Claus. He adds, "This is so disgusting, I've felt sick ever since."

This diner says he rinsed his mouth with brandy then went to the bathroom to vomit. He says the hotel then called an ambulance. Sanz-Claus claims the doctor in the emergency room cut the object in half and confirmed it was a used tampon. New York Presbyterian today confirming he was treated at the hospital.

He was tested for hepatitis at the hospital and was told to be tested for AIDS in two months.

Now, with all due respect to Mr. Sanz-Claus, can we just go ahead and call bullshit on this now? Let's review—A man dining alone bites into a bloody tampon lodged inside of a steak? Come on! Not to mention the fact that the name "Axel Sanz-Claus" sounds like the name of a Bond movie villain. If this were an Applebees or something, we might be inclined to believe it, but there is just no way this is for real. Not at the Waldorf-Astoria. Period.

Right?
