I was in a rush during lunch and accidentially swallowed half of one prong and a quarter of another prong off of the plastic fork I was using. Before you start laughing at me for doing something so stupid, I thought it was an overcooked sliver of potato. I was eating some leftover casserole made from leftover meatloaf and hashbrowns.
So, does anybody know whether or not swallowing a piece of a plastic fork is going to seriously hurt me?

I wouldn't worry about it. I've swallowed some pretty bizarre things before, so I don't think a plastic fork is gonna do anything to you. Besides, I think that the acids in your stomach will take down the fork (or at least break it down some) before it goes through your intestines.
I'd say that you have little to nothing to worry about
I am 99% sure nothing will happen. My little brother swallowed a quarter (don't ask) recently, and nothing bad happened to him. He didn't even feel it, though he freaked out a lot. If nothing bad happened so far, I'm guessing it wont happen now.
I've eaten lots of plastic. I have a problem actually. But that's beside the point. Point is; I've eaten a lot of sharp plastic stuff. I'm fine. You will be too.
