Is "Guts" possible? (spoiler)

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Hi, I'm new to the site and Chuck's books.

I'm reading Haunted right now (please don't spoil it for me!) and was very shocked and horrified while reading the short story "Guts" (In a good way. Well, after I recovered).

I'm sure this has already been asked/answered on this site, but since I couldn't find the answer, is Guts possible? If so, how?!?

I don't understand how it would work in my mind. Saint Gut-Free's large intestine would have to be pulled either inside-out (meaning two layers of it, which he didn't describe) or have broken off at his anus and been pulled out that way (which to me seems at the very least, highly unlikely).

Has this ever actually happened to someone?
