Asparagus...not on my menu
You know the joke 'Is that a banana in your pants or are you happy to see me"? Well, employees at Mortons The Steakhouse in Boca Raton may have taken that joke a little too literally.

According to Jose Lambiet's Gossip Extra, employees of the restaurant, located near Town Center Mall, are involved in a lawsuit which involves the mishandling of vegetables, to put it delicately.

In the lawsuit, filed in Palm Beach County Circuit Court on on October 3rd, Reggie Williams, a chef at Morton's, alleges that his coworkers sexually harassed kitchen staff, both verbally and physically. That's bad, but wait...it gets worse. And it could have affected you.

According to the document filed in court, one of the defendants, Edmund Bleus, would "place stalks of asparagus inside his underwear, next to his anal/genital area in order to simulate an erect penis." 

If that's not horrifying enough, Bleus would "take the asparagus back out of his anal/genital area, return it to his station and, in an utterly revolting, stomach-turning act, reminiscent of the worst fast-food B-movie, and more so, despite the real risk of exposing to the public serious illness and injury, later serve that asparagus to Morton's unsuspecting customers."

Don't believe us?  Read the entire lawsuit here. Kinda makes you want to pass on the sides, doesn't it?

I believe the anal/genital area is called the taint.
