Caterpillar found in Ferris Booth salad (UPDATED WITH VIDEO)

Just when you thought the campus dining options couldn’t get any worse, we introduce to you: Mr. Caterpillar. Spec blogger Grace Bickers noticed it roaming around her Ferris Booth salad this afternoon. If you care to see more, we have some video and another picture of the little guy after the jump.

      Scorned as you may be, Spectrum doesn’t deserve you. Don’t lower your standards; stay in Bwog!

    That is totally repulsive! The only thing I ever get at Ferris is pasta and omelettes occasionally, but this is f$!ked up! No dining plan for me next semester.

      u sign up for both semesters i think. i’m trying to cancel as well but even though we only pay 1 semester at a time, part of the dining contract is that we eventually pay for both. i think..

    It’s a caterpillar. They eat lettuce and other leafy green things. When one accidentally gets in your salad, you pick it off and either throw it away or, if you’re feeling nice, set it free outside. Not a big deal. That being said, Ferris should wash their veggies better.

      caterpillars aren’t supposed to come with your salad, and it’s not even a problem of washing veggies because none of that stuff is fresh anyway
