      Not specific to the British at all:

      "On 6 December 1805 HMS Isis, a 50 gun man-of-war, was stationed in home waters off Spithead when the ship's surgeon, Benjamin Lara, noted the addition to the sick-list of Able Seaman John Cummings. Cummings, a 29-year-old American, presented with 'excessive pain in the stomach and intestines, incapacity of retaining anything in the stomach and pain on walking or standing erect'. On questioning, he admitted to 'having swallowed on the preceding d More..

  • Being honest here-the chap dont look like he's playing with a full deck so 'forgetting' about a fork in his stomach probably comes very easily. :)

  • Socialized medicine at its best if you swallow a fork it will work its way through you

    and the metal bar in your skull will work its way out
