* In a ''ComicBook/SpirouAndFantasio'' album ("Qrn pour Bretzelburg"), the Franchise/{{Marsupilami}} once swallows a state-of-the-art miniaturized radio transistor (it is the Seventies), which somehow ends up stuck in its nose and starts working intermittently, initially startling Fantasio in thinking [[TalkingAnimal it could speak]], then depriving him for sleep when it refuses to shut up, before picking up a distress radio signal and starting the plot.

The iSophagus is any instance where, by swallowing a musical device or instrument, the swallower no longer speaks but emits music. Sometimes the person who swallows said item can magically control what is coming out of his/her mouth. Barring that solution the person must inflict bodily harm to him/herself to "change the channel." Oddly enough, all that is required to make no noise is to shut his/her mouth. It stays in the person until it is [[NobodyPoops expelled by hiccoughing or coughing, or else forgotten]].
