tongue-in-mouth

with 5 comments

Warning: Stream of consciousness post. Why does a snickers bar taste the sweetest on the tip of my tongue than somewhere deep in the abyss of my mouth where the sweet glands are allegedly located? Was I being duped all along?

Why does it have to be called ‘tongue-in-cheek’ when I’m being cheeky? In fact, why is it called ‘cheeky’ in the first place? What’s with all this cheek? (wiki-ing for it will break the stream, so i won’t wiki)

The tongue is the only muscle in the human body which is attached at just one end. It is also supposed to be the strongest muscle in the human body, which is a real irony – the only way to excercise the strongest muscle is to yap like, well, women! Is that why they (women) claim to be ‘strong’?

E.O.P.

  1. It IS a myth that the taste buds are regionally located on the tongue 😀 It’s on wikipedia somewhere, list of common misconceptions or something 😀

  4. stream of conciousness comment.
    why despite having a degree in engineering can i not figure out how to push back the push-back keyboard keeping thingy at work. it has to be the capitalist forces of the world designing things that were not meant for human ergonomical delight thus keeping the masses feeling sufficiently stupid and hence docile.
    how cool that my stream of conciousness sounds like the volga or any other generic russian river.
