FRANKLIN, Tenn. — A customer at Puckett’s Boathouse in Franklin got quite the surprise when she sat down to eat some oysters.

Eric Horton, a server at the restaurant, said a customer was eating fried oysters when she pulled a pearl out of her mouth.

“It happens sometimes, every once in a while. However, this young lady continued to pull pearls out of her mouth, and the only thing we were missing was a string because she found 50 pearls in this one oyster,” Horton said.

The customer was able to take the pearls home.
