Doctors Remove Many Objects from Man's Stomach

A Serbian man had surgery to remove some unusual objects from his stomach, including eight nails, a knife, a pen, a screw, a spoon, and a clothes-peg. There were also several other smaller objects in his stomach. Doctors were amazed that he had swallowed so many items without causing damage to his insides. A relative of the man apparently reported him.

I have so many questions about this. How does a knife wind through your digestive system without causing major damage? What happens when he goes to the bathroom? Did he make clanking sounds when he walked? Was his wife's cooking really so bad that he'd rather eat the silverware?

The identity of the patient has not been revealed. The doctors said he had suffered no major damage to his internal organs, and was successfully recovering.
