Tongue Dyed

One of the techs here at work brought in some leftover cake from her son's first birthday party. For some reason (we haven't asked) she decided that the cake, shaped like a pig face, should be a deep fuchsia. Not that any of you need proof that cake dyes are good for dyeing protein, but I thought I'd share the results.

Imagine if it had been wool, instead. One of the receptionists discovered another effect of the dye, but I'll spare you, dear readers, from a little TMI.

Same effect as beet juice, right? Very nice uvula - is that going to be your new Ravatar?

*snort* I did a darth vader cake once for a bunch of 6 yr old boys. OH MY HOLY HELL, my tongue was black/blue for at least 3 days. At least yours is a nice springy color! HAH

This gives the picture I posted the day I got a poncho stuck on my head a run for its money. The things we bloggers will do! And yet, this makes me like you even more.

Clear demonstration of a Mallampati I airway, AKA easy intubation.

I was going to mention how lucky David is with that big tongue, but then I realized what a barrier that uvula might be to his enjoyment.

Now when you show us a picture of you creating the latter effect, I'll be able to posit on how lucky David is or not.
