I certainly hope someone is keeping a file on these "missing specimen"
stories.  My hats off to the woman who swallowed the specimen!  However, I
do have a good one to share.  We had a very absent-minded pathologist  and,
while grossing an entire colon, he accidental stepped on the floor pedal
for the water control (instead of the floor pedal for the dictating
machine) and washed the entire colon down the drain!  A phone call and
quick trip to the local sewer system station retrieved the specimen and all
ended well.  We also had a screen put over the sink drain.
