Remember the Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs?

Let me introduce you to the man who is going to shit diamonds.

WINDSOR, Ontario Police in the Canadian province of Ontario say they are holding a man who is accused of swallowing a $20,000 diamond as long as it takes for him to produce the evidence.

It has been nearly a week since Richard Mackenzie Matthews, 52, is alleged to have switched a diamond at Precision Jewellers and swallowed the real one.

Matthews has been held at police headquarters while they wait for the 1.7-carat stone to pass through his system. Sgt. Brett Corey said Thursday that Matthews has gone to the washroom numerous times, but the diamond hasn't passed.

I wonder if that sharply-faceted diamond is scraping and cutting his intestines as it moves down the ol' alimentary canal?

Seems like it should have passed by now.
