"The Tongue Thing" - Warning, Do Not Read This Thread


Recommended Posts

[back out NOW. Do NOT read this. I'm telling you this for your own good.]

I'm afraid Mr. Rocks will think this is getting Off Topic, delving into general bad manners.

It is, but let me get it back on track:

I remember exactly where I was, chatting with Member Number One in a restaurant, when all of a sudden she let out a muffled shriek.

"What's wrong?"

"I don't want to tell you."

"Tell me!"

"It will ruin your meal."

"Tell me!"

"Look at the person to your right when she takes a bite of her food."

(there are pages of DiFara videos on youtube"¦ i like this one). And, by the way, if you're coming, let me know. Nothing like tennis and a pizza.

I'm sorry to bring this topic back up after eight years, but the reporter is guilty of "The Tongue Thing."

And so is at least 50% of the dining public.

I warned you not to read this. Now, your life has been changed, forever.
