Weird, but at least he's alright now. I was wondering how anyone could swallow a fork.

He said he was told the fork, which he swallowed 10 years ago, would pass through his system naturally so he did not think to mention it to doctors.

Wow!! Swallowed a fork and forgot about it...

What a fortunate person. At almost any time he could have punctured the stomach lining and died of peritonitis before anyone even knew what was wrong. Nasty death as well....

Those doctors are 'forking' crazy if they believed that.

Maybe he got sausage and fork mixed up. Ate the fork and used the sausage to scoop up his beans

If it passed naturally, I think he would have noticed.

I don't need a ruler... and there's a story I could tell you about a sword-swallowing lady I once met who would swallow things in her sleep... but I don't think I really should.
