Wendy's Announces Free Frosty Weekend (May 13-15)

Seeing as this information grabbed the attention of everyone in the office this afternoon, it will probably make waves in the blogosphere as well..

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Wendy's restaurants are giving away free Frostys frozen desserts this weekend as a thank you to customers who supported the burger chain following an embarrassing incident in California where a women allegedly planted a severed finger in a bowl of chili.

"Our customers stood by us while we defended our good name and protected our employees' livelihoods, so now we're showing our appreciation with free Frostys," Tom Mueller, Wendy's chief executive, said in a press release. "We're moving on."

The company estimates it will give away 14 million Junior Frostys during the event, which runs nationwide from Friday through Sunday. No other purchase is required.

Junior Frostys are normally priced at 99 cents, which means that most Wendy's restaurants will be overrun by mobs of freebie seekers this weekend.

What Robert said might be true, but hey - a free Frosty is a free Frosty! If you're in the area anyway... might as well, right? They'll probably hook a lot of people heading for the freebie who wind up paying for a whole meal anyway.

The only catch is...if you find any body parts, and don't have as good a lawyers as Wendy's does, you go to jail.
