TMP29: Tongues

TMP monday peeve kitty cat

Welcome to my refreshed Monday Peeve! Unburden yourself of an annoyance and you’ll feel better afterward. Or not. Complain in my comments or crab in your own post. Doesn’t have to be on a Monday. You do you.

I know you’re thinking wtf tongues? Does she mean languages? Nope. I mean actual tongues. There is nothing attractive about a human tongue; they are simply practical organs like spleens or whatever. It irks me to no end to see grown-ass adults sticking out their tongues in photos. I mean, WHY? Why do you want to look like a jerk? I don’t get it. It’s not funny, or cute… it simply makes you look ridiculous and often ruins a perfectly good picture. And it is proportional to age. A baby, a toddler, a little kid, eh, maybe a sticking-out-tongue photo is good for a laugh. But a teenager and up? An actual old person? Ick. You look stupid. Stop it. Oh, and it makes your wrinkles stand out more, in case you were thinking that these tongue pics create an impression of impish youth. No, they certainly do not. If you must take them for “fun,” don’t post them to the world, for heaven’s sake. Not everything has to be for public consumption; in fact, most things shouldn’t be. I realize this is contrary to the entire point of the internet now, but whatever.

If I had a lawn, I would indeed yell at you to get off it. Since I don’t, TMPs will suffice.

  3. This is one reason why I never really liked KISS that much, because Gene Simmons was always sticking his tongue out.

  4. I hate those photos too. They think they are sexy! Now I’ve done a few, with grandkids, but it was to be funny, not sexy—ug

  9. Luckily I was born with an overly attached tongue and an unable to stick mine out very far so I never felt the urge in pictures. 😂
    Younger and I will often make silly faces together in a selfie but, again… no tongue.
    I agree with you, they’re gross to look at.
    If one must post a photo of a tongue… make it a big dumb dawg tongue, or a silly cat who leaves their tongue half sticking out photo. Those are funny.

  10. I’ve never taken a photo with my tongue out, but I have a very talented tongue. For example, I can curl it up. I can tie a maraschino cherry stem in a knot with my tongue. I’m just sayin’ 😉
