What Weird Thing Has Your Kid Swallowed?
On Tuesday morning, we were having a conversation on the air about Legos. Why? Because we read a story about how 6 doctors, decided to each swallow a Yellow Lego head. Again, why? Because they wanted to see how long it would take for the Yellow Lego Head to "pass". No, not die. "Pass", as in, BE POOPED OUT. Ummmm....... OK?
What they found, was that it takes, on average, 1.7 days to poop a Lego. Roughly (no pun intended) 41 hours. To poop a Lego.
Why is this important? We have no idea.
HOWEVER, we are radio people and enjoy asking you stupid, life questions... So...
What did YOU swallow? What did your KID swallow? Let us know your story in the comments.
