I once bet my girlfriend at the time’s seven year old fifty quid that he couldn’t lick his own elbow. I lost.


#5

You knew I’d have to try that, didn’t you. I think I sprained my tongue.


#6

So previously she was dating Gene Simmons?

Having just looked at the AI Nude Paintings post, my first thought seeing this author’s name and story title was ‘hey, another post about AI-generated weirdness.’ But nope. That’s actually people-made.

The title does seem reminiscent of The Policeman’s Beard is Half Constructed, doesn’t it?


#9

I am disappoint. I came here to read your comment that you were biting your elbow right now.


#10

Nah, kid just… did it. Licked his elbow like it weren’t no thing.


#11

That’s pretty incredible. Some combination of short upper arms, flexible shoulders and a long tongue?
Bet he was happy with the money though! :joy:


#12

His mum said that was too much money for a seven year old and would only let me give him twenty five. :smiley:


#13

Poor kid, 7 year old me would have been pissed! :unamused:
