I have to admit, this did me chuckle when I read it! Not sure if that's something I should confess to? Yup, shame on me! I think that must have been quite a fair sized sarnie to leave him in that state! But then, I would not find myself trying to eat anything that meant not taking normal sized or sensible bites. I think this is where having eyes bigger than your belly, or at least the stretch you can achieve with your mouth, should be taken into account!

Because of jaw surgery several years ago, the right side of my jaw semi-regularly slides out of socket. It doesn't hurt or get stuck for any length of time though. It must've been a huge sandwich.

This sounds so suspicious...Who dislocates their jaw on a sandwich? ...Aside from this moron I mean... Maybe he had a teeny, tiny mouth...

What a jackass, who would want to compare themselves to Joe the Plummer? I would even go so far as to call ol sammich deepthroater a fishmonger.

Well i can open my mouth to the point where my jaw "pops" and kinda locks open, i cant move my jaw closed, but had to sort of "slide" it foward then it drops down into a normal postion. I ahve had lock jaw a couple of times (acidentally) and its.... unpleasant, your jaw aches for days afterwards. You have to sort of massage your cheeks until it unlocks. But dislocate? i dotn see how that is possible, you can get lock-jaw from opening your mouth to wide for too long ect, but i very much doubt you could dislocate it.

This sounds so suspicious...Who dislocates their jaw on a sandwich? ...Aside from this moron I mean... I have TMJ and I've come close to having my jaw dislocate on various foods (hell, I've had it lock up when I was just trying to open it). It's not his fault or the company's fault that it happened -- which he actually pointed out. Calling him a moron isn't exactly necessary. I'll make sure I don't order that sandwich though. Also, lockjaw is a dislocation, as it is the bone sliding out of socket that causes your jaw to remain open or closed.
