Will My Unchewed Chicken Be Digested ?
« on: 04/09/2007 03:22:13 »
Dear Esophagus Entities,

This evening as I put a mouth full of food in my mouth I hiccuped....the result ?...a big piece of chicken swallowed without even enjoying molar-incisor-chewing joy !!!...It felt horrible and after panicking a bit and some water I recovered !!...which is nice !!

Unfortunately I did not use my calipers to measure the specs of the said piece of chicken before it went south but I somehow managed to swallow it all...but it was big because I'm greedy !!.

Will this piece of chicken get digested ?...or shall I expect Le Chicken Surprise in the little boys room on the morrow ?

A quality diagram accompanies this post !!

Chewing gum does this. If you swallow the gum, it comes out the other end in much the same shape. It is not broken down on the way, or so i read.
