A diner at an upstate New York restaurant got a little something extra with his broccoli — a severed snake head. Jack Pendleton was at T.G.I. Friday’s in Clifton Park on Sunday when he spotted something gray mixed in with his vegetables and realized it was a snake head the size of his thumb, with part of the spine still attached. Pendleton says he snapped a photo with his cell phone camera and called the waiter over. The manager said he’d never seen anything like it. A spokeswoman for the Carrollton, Texas, chain says it’s investigating. The broccoli was pulled from the restaurant and others served by the same supplier. It wasn’t immediately known what type of snake was involved. Pendleton and his girlfriend weren’t charged for their meals. He says he has no plans to sue.
