Spongebob X-Ray

Spongebob x-ray: two words you never thought went together, right? Well, it’s your lucky day because you’re about to find out that this unlikely pairing does go together! Recently, a radiology resident in Saudi Arabia found an x-ray showing a perfectly detailed Spongebob Squarepants toy inside a toddler’s esophagus.

The parents of the 16-month old boy brought him to the hospital after suspecting he swallowed something. A round of x-rays were performed. The side view looked like his sister’s bobby pin, but on the the front view the doctor had a perfect view of a smiling Spongebob.


The radiologist was amazed by the visible details. “You can see his freckles, shoes and fingers…AMAZING.” The reason the x-ray showed so well was due to the painted face was outlined with ridges on the metal pendant.

The pendant belonged to his sister and was removed with no issues.
