Doctors treating a man for suspected food poisoning got the shock of their lives after they found as many as 263 coins and shaving blades - a total of 5kg of metal objects - in his stomach.

My dog thinks he's a gumball machine. He eats pennies and other loose change. His return is not gumballs though. 

Catching him in the act and trying to retrieve it though is as to be expected.

Maybe his depression was caused by chemical imbalance in his brain body and he craved metal to supplement and try to balance? The body will do that like when low on iorn or sodium. Only thing I can think of but what was missibg that metal balanced who knows!

Man, I’ve got some pretty incredible imbalances. Especially coupled with my ulcerative colitis and borderline personality disorder. Eating razors still doesn’t seem appetizing even with my iron deficiency. I just crave bloody rare meat. >.>

That's why I have gold crowns on my molars.  Never broke.

 

BTW - Where any of the coins collectable? Either way they are now.

If he had any sense, he would've swallowed some acid to dissolve the metals. :yes:

Bet he always wondered why his compass pointed toward him....

"Jim, go find your paw. He's wondered off again, take this compass to locate him"...
