Me and Jay Lake at the Nebula Mass Signing yesterday. I taste of executive power. For another few weeks, anyway.

Oh noes, people licking Scalzi’s head is becoming a thing.
Have you ever really looked at a tongue? Tongues are really weird looking. Plus they’re prehensile which is another thing that makes them interesting. Tongues are the sort of thing that, the more you look at them and think about them, the weirder and more interesting they become. And that’s before you get into the other things they are/do. Like taste and touch (I’m very conscious of food texture so I’m sure the tongue plays a big role in that) so they must be sending gobs of data to the brain. And don’t get me started in their role of language. Human or otherwise.
That’s both disturbing and strangely endearing.
Whatever paddles your ass, as my best friend in college liked to say….
Why, I remember back when we kissed the ring to demonstrate fealty. Is this the French way?
Could be worse. Try this. http://www.pbase.com/germando/image/25247821
fava beans and a nice chianti…
Is this your solution to the other day’s hat hair, or the cause?
*sings* Allll we want to do is eat your brains~
We’re not unreasonable.
(I mean, no one’s going to eat your eyes…)
Most Absolute Autocrats require their minions to lick their feet.
And its not vegan.
Listen, strange men in Hawaiian shirts licking scalps is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive authority derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical tongueing ceremony.
“Farcical Tongueing Ceremony” is the name of my next KISS cover band.
But the real question is what does your brain taste like?
JAY! Put that down! You have no idea where that head has been!
