A Guy Goes to the E.R. for a Sore Throat . . . And Neglects to Mention He Swallowed a Fork
People aren't always honest with their doctor. But this takes it to a whole different level.
A 25-year-old guy in Romania named Radu Calincescu recently showed up at a hospital complaining about a sore throat . . . and failed to mention that he'd just swallowed a FORK.
Which sounds impossible, but there are X-rays online to back it up. It turns out Radu had made a drunken bet with his friend, and claimed he was so tough, he could swallow a metal fork without getting hurt. (???)
And the doctors decided NOT to rush him into surgery . . . instead, they told him to wait a few days to see if he could pass it NATURALLY.
It's not clear if that happened, or if it's even POSSIBLE. But Radu says he realizes swallowing the fork wasn't the smartest thing he's done. And he's not going to make any more bets for a while. (Daily Mail / Metro)
(We're pretty suspicious of this one, but not because a guy swallowed a fork . . . that's par for the course these days. But what kind of doctor would tell a patient to PASS it? That part seems fake.)
