WTF???????????? :eek:

A WOMAN obsessed with eating cutlery had to go under the knife to remove 78 forks and spoons from her stomach.

Is it called stupidity syndrome?? :D

Lol possibly. But I first heard about it after watching this episode of ER (when it was more realistic, mind you) where the exact thing happened. Did a little research, and, lo and behold, there was a disease/disability. But isn't there for everything, nowadays?

Delhomeboy is right. There is a disorder that causes people to have the desire to eat metal. Usually those afflicted eat coins (which can be just as dangerous). Never heard of eating cutlery.

But you've seen british fine dining on TV, I'm sure. Their forks look like they come with a child's toy tea set.
