Yellow Beard: Pickled eggs aren't just a choking hazard. When eaten with other gas producing foods, they create a stench that can be cut with a knife. They are the perfect food to have when you have guests in your car and you can lock out their window switches. Also works well for  elevator rides.

You simply must be my brother.  That jackass ate boiled eggs, baked beans and sauerkraut the day before we went on a road trip to Kentucky together - on purpose.  He had control of the windows.  Funny at first, but after 15 farts over an hour - I was ready to beat his ass.  I got him back later in life with a wonderful product called Liquid Ass.

PleaseHamletDon'tHurtEm: sedric: ive had the same issue with a piece of pork off a chop.. you can breathe through your nose but having the backup taken away causes the heart to race.

I ended up going to the hospital where they gave me muscle relaxants to get it down.
it was stuck there for about 2 hours.

worst part was the pork was stuck so tight it caused the saliva to build up in the throat until it reached the thingy at the back of your throat that cause you to gag and then yak up all that spit.

/sorry for posting this around lunchtime

Ooh, yeah.  That just reminded me of the time as a kid that I got a hard candy lodged in my throat.  Not the windpipe, I guess, but esophagus, because I could still breathe.  The Heimlich didn't work when my mom tried it, so I'm guessing that's what happened.  But it hurt, and I was scared shiatless.

I was taken to the emergency room.by ambulance, but there wasn't much they could do short of actually going in there and dislodging it somehow.  So we just waited.  Then out of the blue, my throat cleared.  I suppose the saliva finally eroded it to the point it could be swallowed.  No lasting physical effects, but I think that and a couple of other similar incidents had mental health repercussions.

TL;DR: Choking sucks.  Pseudochoking sucks too.  Chew yer food, son.


My sister started to choke on a hot dog (shut up) at Yankee Stadium.  Surrounded by drunk people watching the game, nobody noticed.  All of a sudden she puked and it knocked the food out of her windpipe.

Classy broad, she is

ChipNASA: sedric: PleaseHamletDon'tHurtEm: Sounds like he choked when they backed up in his throat?  Is that a thing with pickled eggs, and why wouldn't the Heimlich work?

Unless the bartender didn't know the Heimlich and just sort of whacked at his chest.  In that case I'd say fark it and do self-Heimlich on the top of a chair or edge of a table.

Never assume someone else knows it.  This reminds me that I really need to brush up on self-Heimlich, as I live alone and dine by myself most of the time.

I accidentally inhaled a whole grape once.  I could breathe, and eventually it went down, but what a terrifying minute or so that was.

I used liquid ass regularly at one of my old jobs, used to put it on the mouth pieces on the sales guys' headsets if they pissed me off.

Can't imagine how much they'd brush their teeth after they assumed it was their breath that caused that smell.

They are good if you need something in your belly after spending four hours at a bar.


I ate one once and about 45 minutes later I was lucky to get to the bathroom and get my pants down in time.  Perhaps the egg was bad, perhaps the egg wasn't related to the fudge spray that ensued, but I am not eating another.  Besides, I don't like the taste.

Give me a good Jewish garlic dill pickle and then we'll talk.  I can't remember the name of the brand I love so much but know it when I see it in a store and MUST buy them.
