    a dog swallowed a cell phone on a t-mobile commercial, and in an episode of family guy peter swallowed one.
    since she was all right, this is hilarious :p
    although if she died, not so much :/

    I heard from my aunt (who is a radiologist and works in a few area hospitals) that there are some people who come into the hospital, and steal things so they can swallow them. They even brag to other people who do it, much like your average gamer :p "I swallowed a clamp" "I swallowed a stethoscope" "I swallowed a surgeon" :eek:

    That's so strange that I think I'll go read a book.

    " The most extreme case of compulsive swallowing is that of a 42-year-old woman who, in 1927, complained of a "slight abdominal pain." Physicians removed 2,533 objects from her stomach including 947 bent pins. In 1985, physicians removed 212 objects from a man whose stomach contents included: 53 toothbrushes, 2 razors, 2 telescopic aerials, and 150 handles of disposable razors."

    Interesting that the woman swallows pins and the man razors.

    thats not what happened, (read the link) sounds like she put it in her mouth, and then tried to run away from the dude, and it got swallowed.

    The way i picture it, they argued, he tried to get the phone, she shoved it in her mouth, he tried to get it out of her mouth, and she ran w/it in their. </speculation>
    Either way you summed it up in the end: "Dumb." :D

    Portable phones are easier to swallow if you cellivate.

    I'm surprised how clean this thread is... Must be all that cellivating...

    Okay seriously, a chick swallowed a phone and nobody's made any cheap jokes! You lot should be ashamed of yourselves!

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. To put the cell phone in your mouth in the first place was...well like you ended your comments with...dumb!

    See, there's an advantage to having a phone that's larger than most. There's no way in hell I'll be able to swallow my S710a without rupturing my esophagus. ;)

    All small time braggarts and blowhards. Let us know when you do something impressive, like devouring a 17" PowerBook. Even the late Morton Downey Jr. and Rosie O'Donnell (two classic widemouths) would have been challenged to accomplish that feat. :)

    Pff, I inhale those. Literally.
    Last time I checked, surgeons are generally bigger than any PowerBook.

    A very astute observation that I would wholeheartedly concur with. My earlier reply was more in keeping with the actual bizarre foreign objects that are removed from people after they have been ingested for one outlandish reason or another. I glossed over the other claim of a surgeon being ingested because I actually find such a preposterous boast more than a bit difficult to ... umm, nevermind.
