Tonsil stones are known as tonsilloliths which are calcified matter that gets trapped in the crevices of your tonsils. Nice, huh?
They can weigh 300 mg to 42 g. Can you guess how much this little gem weighs? I've added a penny for ease of estimation!
Tonsil stones are putrid, disgusting, cheese-like, curdled yogurt nuggets which I commonly refer to as gag-a-licious, vomitsville, and utterly repulsive. The doctor says there is nothing to worry about except horrible breath 24/7. Oh, that's great, it's not like I ever have to talk with anyone on the job.
You can get them out on your own with the assistance of a q-tip and a little nudge on the tonsil or you can visit the doctor and have them pry it off of your tonsil with a metal instrument- when a tooth pick just won't do the trick.
It's good fun. So, the next time you're bored on a Friday night, have a peek into your throat or stop on by my house.
There's always free popcorn.
