An incredible story, really. This is one celebrity pothole.

I'm so glad the Enquirer thought to tell us that the locket has not "come out naturally" yet.

At least the girl doesn't want it back. Garage sale maybe? Ebay?

About time something positive happened on that part of Reading Rd.
If they really decide to sell the necklace, some details would be better left unstated. It'd be instant "no sale" if I ever found out something I was looking to buy had been through a digestive tract. LOL

This story reminds me of a scary, yet funny in hindsight, event when I was a kid. My brother, about 8 years old, swallowed a quarter, and it got lodged in his throat. He could breath, but he couldn't swallow and he was panicking. My parents rushed him to the hospital (which was only about a half mile from our house at the time, and they were able to stick a tube with a balloon on the end down his throat and expand his esophagus enough that they could pull out the quarter without tearing anything.

When it was all over, the doctor asked my brother how he managed to swallow a quarter. My brother said "I got the hiccups." The doctor asked him why that had anything to do with swallowing a quarter, and my brother said "I was balancing the quarter on my tongue."

Keep in mind that this is the same kid that used to try to chew gum that got stuck to his shoe walking through the parking lot and who would scavenge the floor at the movie theater looking for popcorn.
