Do you think it's true you can drown with a teaspoon of water?

Sounds kinda silly but I remember hearing it when I was younger. I was wondering if you thought it was true or not.

I guess in a way it could be true. I don't think it's literally true, but I do think that it would be possible to choke on a teaspoon of water. If that happened, maybe some could call that 'drowning' even though it really wouldn't be. And the chances of somebody doing that seem PRETTY SLIM so maybe not. LOL. Quite a dilema, once you get the answer maybe we can tackle that whole 'what came first the chicken or the egg' problem!!!
