    Woman Reportedly Bites Into Live Bullet In Hot Dog
    X-Rays Show What Appears To Be Bullet In Woman's Stomach...
    IRVINE, Calif. -- A woman eating a hot dog from a Costco food court in Irvine reportedly bit into a live 9mm round and later found what appears to be a bullet lodged in her stomach, according to a Local 6 News report.
    [​IMG]
    Olivia Chanes, 31, told police she was eating the hot dog Sunday afternoon at the store in Irvine, about 40 miles south of downtown Los Angeles, when she bit into something hard and found what officers determined was a live roundX-rays later found what appears to be another bullet in her stomach.


    Police interviewed workers and opened all of the approximately 25 remaining hot dog packages after Chanes reported biting into the bullet, CEO Jim Sinegal said.


    "We checked everything thoroughly," Sinegal said by phone from Costco's corporate office near Seattle. "Obviously, it's regrettable. ... The question is when could something like this happen."


    The company CEO said he was not aware of any legal claim filed by Chanes. Police and the Orange County Health Department are investigating the incident.

    Costco officials say they serve Hebrew National hot dogs, which are carefully prepared and pass through a metal detector at the factory******* I don't think that it's Kosher!***********
    "This is such an extraordinary thing," Singal said. "It's difficult to understand how this could have happened."

    I cry BS. Tell me you wouldn't notice a 9mm round in a mouthful of food. I know it's a minor caliber, but let's get real! This one reeks.

    Well, as my mother used to tell me when I was five years old: chew chew chew.

    If she'd chew her food instead of swallowing mouthfuls whole, maybe that wouldn't be in her stomach... but perhaps it would anyway. See, I suspect there's a possibility it wasn't in any hotdog and someone who was goofing around got scared something they "ate" never passed.

    Try telling your physician you ate a bullet just for kicks and see if he doesn't try to commit you.
    It's a weird world out there, question everything.

    I dunno...

    Sounds like a pretty good way to test primer and bullet sealant. When she passes it, they should clean it and find out if it shoots ok. :D

    We will finally be able to prove that 9mm is a crap caliber.

    "chew chew chew"

    BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

    I guess old Fletcher had a point: "Nature will castigate those who don't masticate". Horace Fletcher, (1849-1919) evolved a system called Fletcherism, concerned chiefly with the slow mastication (chewing) of food.

    Yes, kinda hard to believe someone could swallow a live 9mm round without noticing. I suppose it's possible if you really bolt your food down.

    Lodged? Time for strong laxative, the lady's obviously full of sh*t.

    /begin recklessly stolen list of puns

    Alright everyone, get your shots in
    She doesn't need to sue, she's already loaded.
    If I were the CEO of the hotdog company I'd be sweating bullets right about now.
    Somebody's gonna get fired over this.
    I don't want to jump the gun here, but it looks like she needs to watch what she eats.
    I believe the story, this lady seems like a straight shooter.
    I thought Costco was a higher caliber organization than that.
    Yet another round of high-caliber lawsuits. They'll be shelling out the money in no time. As long as she doesn't get cocky, she might be able to hammer them. They'd be over a barrel.
    Man, that hot dog company sure shot themselves in the foot.
    Sometimes you just got to bite the bullet
    I think the article is shallow, and has made a very hollow point.
    It's kind of sad, really. I had a friend who bit the bullet this way.

    I'm pretty sure she swallowed the round on purpose to drum up a fraudelent lawsuit. If I bite into anything hard in a hotdog, I'm spitting it out, not swallowing it.

    Bit into a sandwich once, it crunched. Hmm, cream cheese ain't supposed to crunch. Check bread, find part of a very large cockroach baked inside. He went clear through three slices! It was a long long time before I could eat cream cheese after that.

    I don't believe this story about swallowing a 9mm.

    How much do you want to bet she was like 400lbs and was swallowing the hot dogs whole. Man oh man I tell you this is truly sad how low somebody will stoop to sue a company. There is no way no how this could have happened legitimately.

    I think Kobayashi-san, that lithe yet determined 140lb Japanese hot dog eating champion, uses the swallowing whole technique

    Now even assuming this story is true, its clear that the lady wont be harmed by the 9mm in her tummy...now if she would have eaten a bratwurst with a 45 acp in it, she would have been blown back 15 feet and died on the spot...

    Note how the story says

    "Reportedly", "appears to be"... I dunno about this. Sure, later in the story there's apparent confirmation by officers, but I can't imagine somebody eating a 9mm with a hot dog.

    She says that she bit into it, and then swallowed anyways?

    Uh-huh. We'll see.

    OK, how do you even

    Get passed one 9MM in a hotdog and swallow. Did she not chew?

    ***, Unless this woman is a human vacuum, there is no way that she could get that past her mouth unless she bit then swallowed.

    I hope that this is found out to be a crime of fraud. Also, try pushing 2 9mm into a cooked hotdog and see if you can't clearly see something is wrong. at most the dog is 2 times the diameter when raw.


    Something is not right here!!!!

    If the rounds were actually in the hotdog, they were inserted after it left the factory because they go through a metal detector after processing. Personally I think she planted them herself in an attempt to make some money. That's a large, heavy object to swallow without noticing.

    I fyou look at the x-ray

    thin woman. So we all know that she was chewing and I don't know anyone who doesn't chew a few times. Hell, don't feed me for days then throw me a nice tasty hot dog loaded with Ketchup and I will still chew a bit before a swallow.

    Now hand me one when I am "3 sheets to" and that is another story......
