An 18-inch dog swallows a 15-inch serrated knife

An 18-inch dog swallows a 15-inch serrated knife and lives to, well, bark about it. Not the most compelling story on metafilter, but the x-ray photo is worth the trip (and they had no idea it was in there until they did the x-ray).

Sword-swallowers have been around for years, huh? Huh.

Sword-swallowers, sure.

Sword-ingesters -- now that's something I would watch.

My guess is small children and the elderly. Watch out grandma.

Forgive me for sounding heartless: is it such a good idea to leave the "insatiable-appetite-for-long-serated-objects gene" in the Staffordshire Bull Terrier gene pool?
