CRYSTAL LAKE, IL-- The Shady Pines country club in Crystal Lake Illinois Shocked guests of a wedding reception on Saturday when they served severed cat heads as appetizers before dinner.
The incident was believed to have been caused by miscommunication between the country club management and its new Chef, Lee Mun Ku.
"We're so embarrassed," said Shady Pines event coordinator Peggy Wilson, "Mun Ku speaks very little English. He's from Thailand. We asked him to serve 'just the top of the parsley' I have no idea how he came up with this."
Cat head is considered a delicacy in some parts of the world, and Lee, through an interpreter expressed his apologies for the confusion. "I did not know that this animal was considered pet." Said Lee, "I want to make very best meal. Cat brain very tasty."
The incident might not have been so traumatic had it not tragically coincided with the release of the family film 'Garfield,' based on the popular comic strip. Apparantly, several guests had taken their children to see a matinee of the film to kill time between the wedding and reception.
'It was just awful!" Said guest Noreen McCormack, "I'm mean, to have to look at something that horrible...I can't express how utterly sick it made me. And that was just the movie! When my kids sat down to eat at the reception...out comes the waiter with an orange cat head on the plate! How am I supposed to explain something like that to a seven year-old?"
Norm MacAfee, father of the bride and long time Shady Pines member was outraged. "I can't believe they would do this to me!" Said Peterson, "At least six guests fainted, most of the others are no longer speaking to me...Including my daughter! Not to mention I now have PETA on my ass and over 200 cat heads to get rid of. I don't even want to tell you what that idiot (Lee) did with the bodies!"
While The Spoof feels it best not to describe to readers exactly what was done with the bodies, we can report that very little dish washing was required for the main course.
Lee states that he does not plan to give up cooking in the U.S., and says that his next job will be at a company picnic of a well known business. "I try to make American food next." Said Lee, "They want me cook something called 'hot dog,'"
