Resolution 1 - Keep Tongue in Cheek


My buddy posted a photo of me on Facebook with my tongue sticking out. The hubster has posted a photo on Facebook and My Space of me with my tongue sticking out. All embarrassment aside about why I'd have "My Face" accounts, I really need to examine my tendency to sabotage photos with my tongue.

My mother used to say, "I wouldn't want that nasty thing in my mouth either." In today's parlance, I think that means, "Whatever." While she found the stuck out tongue offensive, in one of my most memorable photos of her mother, the tongue is out. Apparently, I'm passing the proclivity on to my own progeny.

Tongue Twisters

This is my kids' favorite:
Unique New York

This is Guinness's hardest:
The sixth sick sheik's sixth sheep's sick.

This is the least appropriate for children:
I'm not the pheasant plucker, I'm the pheasant plucker's son,
And I'm only plucking pheasants till the pheasant pluckers come!

Are these facts true?

* If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. Anyone wanna come over for a piping hot brew?

* The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds. That's sad news for bottom feeders.

* Every person has a unique tongue print, though I am sure the blotters don't taste all that great.

Great Tongues Behave Alike


Mental Note

Sticking out your tongue isn't the only way to goof in a photo. In the New Year, I will place my tongue more firmly in my cheek in favor of less bacterial photos.

  3. Can't wait till a prosecutor tells me, "Bad news, Max. The lab came back with a positive tongue-print match for your guy."
