Long-Tongue Girl

Exhibit A:

This image has been floating around the internet for quite a while. Over four years, I would guess, which is a lifetime in internet years.

I don't know why it caught my attention, but it did, and I decided to see if I could find any information about it. Or rather, although it's obvious the picture has been photoshopped, I was curious how much it had been altered.

I soon dug up a second (seemingly earlier) version of the picture. Exhibit B:

The girl's tongue is shorter here, but it's still very long. So is this the original photo? Or has it also been shopped? I don't know, but my suspicion is that it's the original. Which means the girl in the picture really does have a very long tongue. Who this girl is, I have no idea. But I wonder if she's aware that she's famous on the internet as 'long-tongue girl'?

I think it's a reference to Gene Simmons or one of the hair metal albums of the 1980s where a guy had a massive tongue.

I did some looking and the album in question is Poison's "Open up and Say...Ahh!" from 1988. And it was a woman made up like a cat with a giant fake red tongue, not a man.

This isn't very helpful, but I think I saw something a few weeks ago about a new Guinness record-holder for longest tongue, and judging by the photo her tongue was a similar length to this one (I don't think it was the same person). So such tongues are feasible.

Google and thou shalt find. The Guiness record-holder is called Chanel Tapper and there's an interview with her here:
