    On sat 5/7/11 i swallowed a loose tooth crown. How long does it take to pass through my intestine.

    Hey Swoosh, I just finally found my crown.....had to wait 10 days !! I was going to give up last night, but at $1k to replace, I thought I'd stick w/ it for one more damn day. Hooray, right decision ! I'm a real regular twice a day pooper, so thought it'd come out in a couple days tops, I was wrong. It's gross, but it'll finally come out, don't give up. Mine's soaking in bleach right now, looks pretty good for being inside me for 10 days ! I'll be laughing about this for some time, you will too, eventually.

    Merry Christmas to me. It wasn't exactly in my stocking but 5 days later and I have it back...
