A spoon full of Cinnamon

Earlier today one of my employees came to me and asked, "Can a human swallow a spoonful of cinnamon?" After staring at her blankly for about 30 seconds I responded with, "I don't know... and don't you have some work you should be doing?" Of course this planted a seed of wonder in my head as to why she would ask such a question. 30 minutes later I approach her and ask her "Why did you ask me if a human could swallow a spoonful of cinnamon?" At which point I was caught in the middle of a disagreement.

One of my people said they heard on the radio this morning that a human can not swallow a spoonful of cinnamon. They went so far as to try it on the radio show with multiple people and none of them where successful. My other employee stated it's baloney, there is no reason a human couldn't do it. Well I honestly don't know, and really don't want to try it. So I suggested each go home and give it a try and bring back the results tomorrow.

Until then, do any of you know if a human can swallow a spoonful of cinnamon?

Sure! If you mix it with enough water - or better yet, cookie dough! :)

Looked it up :p It's *hard* to swallow because it's a fine power and it's an irritant (especially to the throat), plus the saliva kinda turns it into a paste... but not impossible.
