Eating Spaghetti With A Spoon
Besides young children that cannot yet handle a knife and fork to eat their dinner, does anyone really eat spaghetti with a teaspoon?? Apparently so...
A 26 year old woman from Sydney got more than she bargained for during a dinner conversation when she laughed so hard she accidentally swallowed a spoon.
The woman ingested a teaspoon when she was overcome by the giggles while eating spaghetti, The Sunday Telegraph newspaper said.
The 15-centimetre (six-inch) spoon stuck in her throat at the top of her stomach.
Doctors at Canterbury Hospital sedated the woman and removed it "with great difficulty" during a 90-minute operation.
Thank goodness she wasn't using a fork!!
.... Just another day ....
