Police in Blue Springs, Missouri, suspect that a 24-year-old woman who swallowed a cell phone during an argument with her boyfriend may not have done so intentionally. Initial reports of the incident said that she had swalled the phone on purpose to keep her boyfriend from using it, but police now believe her gentleman suiter may have forced the handset down her throat. Frankly, we’re strangely relieved by the thought that the injury may not have been self-inflicted. (Malice is somehow easier to accept than sheer stupidity.) But in either case, this is a good argument for the development of even smaller handsets.
