"Unexpected Swallowing of a Knife" -- that's a grabbier title than most ones you see in medical journals.
The short item, a clinical image in this week's New England Journal of Medicine, explains that a 30-year-old woman with a history of bulimia had been bragging to friends that she no longer had a gag reflex. She put the knife into her mouth and then laughed -- at which point she swallowed the knife.

I’ve heard about the goodness of colloidal silver, but not colloidal silverware. Isn’t this an overdose?
Nah, they probably scoped her. Didn’t seem like it would merit surgery.
Say "Ahhhh ..."
By the way, aren't you supposed to use a spoon?
I surrender the rights to this thread for your use and a thread-to-be-named-later.
I eat my peas with honey.
I've done it all my life.
They may taste kind of funny,
But it keeps 'em on my knife.
(recalled from the comic strip "The Born Loser" from 20+ years ago!)
I shall not tell you that I remember that comic, but I WILL say that time is a leveller!

Rain, huh? I think you have different clouds in your clime.
Thank you very kindly!
What's this all about?

Man, I HATE it when that happens.
I admit, I find the subject of this thread quite amusing as the only thing I ever accidentally swallowed was mouthwash.
And that was only because I got slapped on the back by the eldest of the three of us.

The lady of subject of this thread..

“A roll of coins?”
Human Devolution continues apace I am afraid.
The magnet scene from the movie Fortress, or the bug removal scene from Total Recall.
No. No coins.
That would just mean people standing around waiting for change.
That’s the whole trick.
Might work these days.
Weird... I’m not sure I can swallow the excuse you are using for this Month’s UT. There is just no way for me to ingest the logic. Not even the Swiss Army could puzzle out a way to make this work...
Let’s cut to the chase here... From my larynx to my toes, I hate trolls...
