Supposely true, heard on NPR's Morning Edition on Jan. 11, 1993: In a series on rising health care costs, a man was being interviewed about his visit to a hospital emergency room. A chicken bone had become lodged in his throat or windpipe. The bone was removed in a visit lasting about 2 hours. The bill was over $3,000. But, the best part was, "They sent the chicken bone to a lab. It came back 'chicken bone'."
