Demonstrating that bulimia had destroyed her gag reflex...

... a woman laughs inopportunely.

The woman was transferred to a psychiatric unit after the knife was removed, Drs. Venado and Prebil said.

Was very much hoping to see this.

That wasn't the first time she swallowed a knife and needed surgery!?

I mean, maybe, the first time, we say "wow that was unlucky"...

Well, the sword swallower, he comes up to you/And then he kneels/He crosses himself/And then he clicks his high heels/And without further noticeH/e asks you how it feels/And he says, “Here is your throat back/Thanks for the loan”

She could get a job in porn.

But she'd probably have to put on some weight.

Althouse, does edutcher comment at every thread you post? Rhetorical.

The original New England Journal piece leaves the impression that her doctors thought it was an accident until her husband told them she had done it before. That's when they transferred her to psychiatry. I doubt very much a laugh caused her to swallow the knife.

I assume she's horrified at how fat she looks in the x-rays.
