Faithful readers may remember how
I had a piece of glass stuck in my heel for nearly a month last fall
. Well, this kid from my hometown of Perkasie, Pa., has got me beat by a mile:
He had a piece of tape stuck in his right lung
for two years
! Incidentally, if you're as fascinated with foreign objects in human bodies as I am, you most definitely need to visit the
Mütter Museum at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia
, which boasts an impressive collection of objects swallowed and removed - and the instruments used to remove them. Good stuff.
