Making plans for 2008
It's the feel good story of the day. A 12 year-old German school girl gets her place in the Guinness Book of Records for her tounge.

"My friends always said I had an incredibly long tongue - I could make lots of money with it one day," said Annika.



Maybe in the porn industry, I can't think of any other way.

Speaking for the ladies, which I am usually loathe to do, I have to point out that we really don't know whose team she's on yet.

If there is any justice in this world, she'll bat for both sides.

It's not the size of the tongue. It's what you do with it.

Agreed. Whichever side of the plate, it makes me glad just knowing she's out there...

How about Zebulun, November 9. Interesting follow-up from several days later...

But DragonBoy you definitely get the award for best tag line. And Christmas comes sooner than you think. Get yourself a plane ticket for 2006.

Why in Papa New Guinea & Sri Lanka its illeagal for Male-Male & Female-Female are legal at 16? So Ellen is cool, but not....Ricky Martin?

I clairify: DragonBoy is the "Metafilter" Blogger of the month. From this point forward...there WILL be a blogger of the month. It will be voted upon towards the end of the month

thekorruptor: The legislators probably didn't know lesbianism existed. Do they get Ellen in Sri Lanka?

And Ricky Martin? Gay?! Well you learn something new every day...

Since November 12, over 3/4 of my search engine referrers have been Irmler seekers.

The girl with the serpentine tongue
Is lucky she's still much too young.
Horny men all admire her
And lesbians desire her
Let's hope she's bilingually hung.
