Pen Removed from Woman's Stomach after 25 Years and Still Works

A 76 year old woman accidentally swallowed a pen. She wanted a better look at her tonsils. She used a mirror and a pen, which slipped and went down the esophagus (food canal)! Doctors didn’t believe her when she went to get herself checked. Furthermore, X-rays didn’t show anything.

Twenty-five years later, a surgeon removed it from her and found the pen in full working order. This story has all the makings of a wonderful ad campaign for the pen manufacturer.
