Always use a spoon for removing roaches.

When I was young I had to swallow a roach when a cop pulled up beside me.

BTW is Sylva Ware a Jewish name?

There's only two ways, and one is much longer than the other.

If you frequent TB enough I'm sure you'll end up digging out all manner of foreign objects from your airway.

See, this is what happens when you don't have the proper tools. If this woman had had one of my patented RoachForkTM's, this never would have happened.

Listen freepers, I'm telling you this as a public service. You never know when you, too, will suddenly find a cockroach in your esophagus. It can happen to any of us. So be prepared. Order your RoachForkTM today. Get one for your boss, too. Only three dollars two fifty-six, available from roach coachlunch-truck drivers everywhere.

She swallowed the spider to catch the fly. I don't know why she swallowed the fly. Perhaps she'll die.

She should a have just swallowed some liquid drain cleaner. That would have disolved the roach and eliminated her clog.

How can a fork fit sideways in your throat like that? It doesn't look possible! I think it's got to be phony!

The fork is now in her stomach, folks, if it is an accurate photo, ie. not doctored (no pun intended) or simply lying on the abdomen. Could be that they're monkey-fishing in Israel.
BTW, someone needs to forward the picture to www.placebojournal.com. They love stuff like this and would publish it in a heartbeat. (The doc realizes how many medical expressions he uses without even thinking about it).

That is not her throat, unless she has ribs up there.(...maybe she swallowed them too?)
