How about complete oral cavity obstruction because the patientS were having a marshamallow and cracker eating contest and it turned in to paste like cement in their throat.

  • indeed telofy!
    which leads us to the obvious question... what IS a poetry slam?
    A poetry slam is no mere open mic. It is a competitive wordsmith sport where all are welcome and embraced by the slamily, but only the strong of heart and voice thrive. Not just poets, but Spoken Word Artists, give less than 3 mins (and 10 seconds) of their best effort (aka as Spit) to a crowd of other poets, fans, groupies, fans and strangers.
    rarely, that of others). These performances - no costumes, no props, no music - are then judged on a numeric scale of 0.1 (being the worst poem you've ever heard, take the poets out back and put them out of our misery) or 10.0 (best poem you've ever heard, hands down, have their larynx bronzed immediately!) by five judges: previously selected members of the audience (preferably slam virgins and strangers who are new to slam and not sleeping with, doing the laundry, or otherwise stalking any of the poets). Slam poets with the best cumulative scores advance to the final round of the night, accumulating annual scores that ultimately give them rise merit to compete on a National Level. The audience chooses from whom they will hear more poetry, as well as be quickly engaged between the barrierless forum of audience and stage. It is s rowdy, involved, supportive, sustaining grassroots movement of performance and poetry and distance erasing friendships.

The primary signs and symptoms: poorly timed pain response to bumps, positive dollar signs found during eye exam, and the absence of any real signs and symptoms other than moaning and groaning worthy of natural selection. "On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the worst pain you've ever felt, how bad does it hurt?" Symptomatic response, "Oh it's a 12 for sure - Man! Did you see that game last night??! Hey, can I borrow your phone to call my wife? Cool ringtone...."

  • Telecommunications wires, fibers, and cables exposed to the elements expand and contract daily due to variations in ambient temperature from day to night. Aerial cables suspended from poles stretch during the warmth of the day, with the weight of the cable magnifying the effect, and shrink in the cool of the night. As they do so, the length of the path increases and decreases, and signal propagation delay increases and decreases slightly. As a result, high speed digital systems can suffer timing problems that can cause losses of synchronization and, ultimately, temporary system failures
