    Have you got a link to the article Chris ?

    I have just googled george whatsisname and found lots saying its an urban myth, then I came accross this BBC web page....

    news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm

    A 70-year-old Japanese man almost died when he got a rice cake stuck in his throat, the Sunday Times (Singapore) reports.


    Fortunately his daughter had the presence of mind to thrust a the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner into his mouth and suck the offending object out of his windpipe.



    Singapore's Sunday Times - first for near-death rice cake incident news.

    Japanese health officials warned this is "not an accepted way to dislodge such items," before adding: "Although the man is alright you have to be careful since such actions can harm your intestines."

    Every year large numbers of elderly Japanese people die after eating glutinous rice cakes.

    shouldnt laugh but....
