Gastro Slalom Race is won by whomever "passes" the special teflon coated ferro-magnetic torpedo first.

To assist with its progress each competitor has a dotted line drawn unto their torso, marking the direction of their intestinal tract, and is equipped with a powerful magnet to encourage the progress of the torpedo as it negotiates the various internal bowel convolutions.

A team of surgeons are kept on stand-by.
Jumping about is not permitted.
No responsibility accepted for any adverse after-reactions.

       Dang. I thought this said "salami."

       me too.

       Incidentally, it can be extremely dangerous to swallow, separately, _two_ powerful magnets. They can pinch a fold of G.I. tract between themselves.   

       Also, I hope those surgeons know not to put you in a NMRI machine.

       It doesn't need to be magnetic: just fill up on your favourite colon cleanser and you're off to the races. There's also a drug that contracts the colon muscles as well... though that would perhaps be illegal for competition.

       Will the edited CT highlights be available on DVD?   

       Curry, anyone …?

       //two powerful magnets// True, whereas one magnet is safe. Applying the Scientific Method, and using inductive reasoning, we hypothesize that an odd number of magnets is safe and proceed to swallow 3 magnets, at 1-hour intervals.   

       The results of this experiment lead to a new hypothesis: a prime number of magnets is unsafe. (Swallows 4 magnets at one-hour intervals.)

       Five words: baking-soda and peroxide propulsion.

       That's not just five words, it's a death sentence.

       Not a sentence: no verb.
mouseposture, Jun 11 2011
  

       A major sentence contains a finite verb. Minor sentence, no finite verb. A death sentence usually contains several verbs: be taken, be hanged, etc.

       Ah, yes: //propulsion// -- a gerund.
OK, how about "no predicate" ?
