sydney hotel serves up poo-laden gelato

EASTERN suburbs drinking hole the Coogee Bay Hotel is at the centre of a scandal involving the serving of human faecal matter in a bowl of ice cream.
entire story here - but be warned, it's not for the squeamish:
the hotel manager said, "We are aware of the allegation that has been made, and are treating it as extremely suspicious,''
my cynical mind wonders if there's a deeper story about the couple involved and whoever was in the kitchen.
it doesn't sound like the sort of harmless prank some cooks have been known to pull.
re: Sam Fujisaka
Sam, I would have a hard time getting over the trauma of the entire experience, ESPECIALLY if I was carrying a bit of poo in my purse for all to "inspect." I imagine that is scarring the children worse than the original incident . . . "And then mommy pulled the poo out AGAIN!"
now the spin doctors are suggesting that gordon ramsay is needed to salvage the pub's reputation:
"Public relations guru Max Markson, from Markson Sparks, labelled the hotel's attempts to deny responsibility for the dessert as "amateur hour".
A public mea-culpa and a Gordon Ramsey-style makeover would be required to restore public trust in the Coogee Bay Hotel, he said.
"If they could bring Gordon Ramsey in, and clean the kitchens, give them a total clean, they need almost to sack all the kitchen staff, which might be outrageous, and start afresh," he said."
