Not me,  but this poor lady that made a mistake in the recipe.
And then served it to her coworkers for a taste test.
On live television.

It Burns!

Oh my goodness that was my local tv station! I heard about it on the radio. It was the traffic lady, who I have disliked for years and years! She used pickled artichokes instead of fresh, and didn't even seem to understand that yeah, the pickling would make it taste vinegary. And in an attempt to fix it, she added herbs and stuff... didn't work. The weather guy (young fella on the far left) talked about it on his weather segment on the radio when the morning host asked him about it.

When you have cats that have access to a cat flap and you need to go to the bathroom in the night, don't do it without putting on the slippers you keep by your bed. Someone was so keen to give me an early Christmas present that the freshly slaughtered and still oozing rat corpse was on my bedroom floor instead of (as is usual) somewhere downstairs. Guess where I put my bare foot.

I can't work out if it's better or worse to have this still warm, or already cold...  Ew!

This was Dad, when I was much younger.  Put his feet out of bed at 6am or thereabouts to go downstairs and make coffee.  None of us needed coffee that morning, we were all woken by his yell - the cat had left half a mole, still warm, beside the bed.
We found the other half of the mole on the garden path 3 days later.

Presumably the cat thought your dad only deserved half a mole? ;)

When I was a kid I kept a pair of snow boots outside the garage door to put on when I had to go out to get wood for the wood stove.  I slipped them on barefoot once to find one of our mousers had left a present inside one of them.  The only upside was that particular cat didn't present gifts without first draining them.  All we ever got was skin and bones, so at least it wasn't wet!

I didn't need mine for a while one winter...
My barefoot toes found a whole nest of baby meeces.  I yelped, and waited a week or 2 (I probably should have put down the mice babies, but, I'm a softy) and then threw the boots out.
New boots.
