Chew your food pig.

good advice. No forks. Always use a knife. Sharp Butcher Knives...

I guess he got the point. (or 4 points, more accurately)
 
2003-03-06 11:33:42 AM  
I wonder what this guy does if he's constipated.

Wouldn't this be consider fruit of the Ananova poisoned tree???? We should reject this link.

If you swallow a fork then you're a dork.
 
2003-03-06 11:36:54 AM  
Ok

Man...swallows...meat


Jay-Tea nice cross-over with the Johnnie Cochranisms in the victim-died-9-years-later thread.

I think I have to agree with LostAgain...

Ionel Aldea, 56, from Focsani, said: "There was this piece of meat on the grill that I couldn't resist."

For some reason, I picture this guy to be a little on the large side by that comment.....

"The plastic fork slipped down easier but the metal one was bigger and gave me a really hard time."

Glad he didn't have to grunt that one out. Would have been hella painful.

Ok, the man swallows meat thing was supposed to be followed by something to the effect of "bad Spaceballs reference/paraphrase."
It wasn't pure guttermind. :)

Sounds like the doctor was really excited to get such a rare case. I wonder if ER docs keep scrapbooks of their odd patients? Is this a game like a scavenger hunt? How many points for a self-inflicted plastic fork tracheomoty?

I had a friend one time swallow one of those darts out of a blowgun. It was like a round plastic bead with a 5 inch piece of piano wire in it.
It looked funny on the xray.
We still laugh about it.

I seem to remember a thread about a medical journal article that was, essentially, a list of weird stuff this one doctor found shoved up people's asses.

CanuckGuy, uh-oh, here come the pickles. Or maybe eggplant is the new hotness.

Live by the sword, die by the fork.

Same line of thinking as the Coka-cola abortion.

the story is much better if you substitute the word penis for fork throughout the story.
 
2003-03-06 11:54:40 AM  
I hope he doesn't have kids. It would be a damn shame to bring more idiots into the world.

"Dr Nicoale Bacalbasa, who helped remove the fork, said: 'I've never seen this kind of case before. It's once in a lifetime that a doctor gets a chance to see this kind of thing.'"

Apparently the guy went to a different doctor the second time.

Im not sure ...but hasnt this been the plot of like 17 Simpsons episodes( and 3 Futurama episodes)?????
 
2003-03-06 12:01:31 PM  
I'm thinking there is a missing reference to the excessive acohol consumption?
 
2003-03-06 12:04:07 PM  
No one ever choked on FARK. It's much safer!

I have given the Heimlich manouver twice. Both within 6 months of each other. It is not as easy as in the movies. The first time the chick was choking on steak and was a little on the heavy side. Her eyes were wide open and she was able to squeak out "help me". I grabbed her and started working it. It took about 40 or 50 thrusts in the course of around 1-1/2 minutes. She was almost passed out and I was too. I wasn't sure sure that she had coughed it out so I grabbed a long barbeque grill fork that I was going to jam down her throat when I saw that she was indeed breathing.
The second time was in a bar and a friend had just chomped on a large bite of chicken salad and followed with a gulp of beer. He started making the sign of choking, I grabbed him and 2 or 3 three thrusts and he spit it up.
Made me chew my meals correctly since then.

What a dumbass! Everyone knows you should use a lit cherry bomb to remove blockages.
 
2003-03-06 12:14:27 PM  
There's a "mommy mommy" joke in this somewhere.

When I'm choking on pictures of Christina, I try to use the least painful method: sanding the image off my cornea.

Dr Nicoale Bacalbasa, who helped remove the fork, said: "I've never seen this kind of case before. It's once in a lifetime that a doctor gets a chance to see this kind of thing."

Sounds like Krmer's "Doc... You wouldn't believe how this happened. 100-1 shot I tell ya."

Proctologists have SH!TTy jobs.
 
2003-03-06 12:37:55 PM  
whoops Kramer, not Krmer.

Maui Haui: "..chick was choking on steak and was a little on the heavy side. It took about 40 or 50 thrusts in the course of around 1-1/2 minutes. She was almost passed out and I was too."
Wow, after that I need a cigarette.. you did get her number, right?

Cymtex *snicker* Oh yeah!
 
2003-03-06 01:48:38 PM  
Maui Haui: I don't think Heimlich Maneuver means what you think it means...
 
2003-03-06 02:05:02 PM  
LucaBrasi: OH Heimlich! I thought they said Hineylick!
 
2003-03-06 02:08:34 PM  
Maui Haui: Oh...no problem...happens all the time (I wish)
 
2003-03-06 05:55:21 PM  
Maui Haui, there's a whole lotta thrustin' goin' on!!!
