This Thursday (Feb. 28) is International Sword Swallowers Awareness Day, which honors the contributions to science and showmanship of those who have braved the blade.
Sword Swallowers Association President Dan Meyer will begin the day at a ribbon cutting ceremony with his hometown mayor, followed by two appearances in radiology departments at local hospitals.
Meyer says, A lot of doctors think sword swallowers are fake, but then they see us, and they realize we can be used in medical research for swallowing disorders.
Before the international celebration which also has Meyers blade buddies performing in Australia, New York, Kansas, and Washington, D.C. Meyer will be slicing his way into the celebrity spotlight.
On Wednesday (Feb. 27), Meyer will be taping a segment for Americas Got Talent, where hell swallow swords under the sharp scrutiny of judges David Hasselhoff, Sharon Osbourne, and Piers Morgan.
But Meyer can handle the cutthroat schedule, and says, Its an honor!
