Why Would You Swallow Your Cell Phone?

This is crazy. I know you clicked here because you wanted to make sure your read that right, or you wanted to make sure it wasn’t a typo…..but I assure you: You read it correctly, and “no”, not a typo!

A man in Egypt swallowed his cell phone and it remained in his digestive tract for 6 months! It actually required surgery to remove! (I guess cell phones don’t digest that well…..haha!)

And I know what you’re thinking…. Why in the world would somebody swallow their cell phone?
