Elbow Licking: A Much More Interesting Thesis Topic


That said, I need to go over my presentation a few more times, so there will be no Quirky today. You will just have to amuse yourselves. To help you pass the time, I recommend you trying to lick your own elbow.

I saw an email forward once that said it was impossible for people to lick the end of their own elbows (and by the end I mean the bony part with the turtle skin...not the inside of your elbow). Anyway, it must not be impossible because I can do it. I attribute it to the fact that I have very flexible shoulder blades rather than the long reptilian tongue, but feel free to use whatever works for you.

This is also a fun game to keep children entertained for a few precious minutes. Let me know if anyone else can do it, or if the elbow licking quirk ends with me.

In the mean time, I'm going to focus on not throwing up during my presentation.

Best wishes to you! I know how exhausting this process can be. I almost licked my elbow, but just the side of it, I couldn't touch the tip. I too am VERY bendy, but I have a short tongue. I blame the tongue.

You have a freak tongue. And freak shoulders. Freak.

Anyway, good luck with the dissertation!! Let me know how it goes!

Nope, can't lick my own elbow. My my dog can lick her elbow, does that count?

Hope everything went well. When do you hear back on it?
