Imagine looking online to purchase say a new toaster and a picture of your baby pops up for sale!  This is what happened to an unidentified Canadian woman when she found an online ad offering her baby for sale based on photos she’d posted on Facebook!  RCMP Sgt.

A 30-year-old Atlanta woman is OK after accidentally swallowing a butter knife.

During her exhibition, she laughed and accidentally swallowed the knife.  She was rushed to the hospital where doctors performed a surgery to remove the knife without damaging the woman’s throat or stomach.  However, her husband later revealed the woman had swallowed a knife four years ago and she was then transferred to a psychiatric unit, the doctors said.
