And hey, even if it doesn’t stop the snoring, I bet that kind of tongue muscle toning would still be appreciated by any consenting adults you happen to share a bedroom with.

I’ll give it a try later

Peer-reviewed study or GTFO.

singing God Save the Queen with your tongue poked out

“This surgeon says snoring is a voluntary habit and can be cured by singing God Save the Queen with your tongue poked out”

The Queen. With your tongue poked out.

I see.


#7

Damn! You covered that with graphics! Damn!


#8

This is a lost Monty Python sketch, isn’t it?


#9

Well, she appears to have made this guy a moron…

I wonder if the mechanism of action is supposed to be the specific movements required to sing the song; or is it your faith and loyalty in your head of state that cures you?

If so; will my snoring get worse if I treasonously coddle up to a foreign hereditary tyrant; but abate upon sufficient recitation of the pledge of allegiance?


#11

That should be

“Save the Queen with your tongue poked out.”


#12

I’m a bit lacking in that department. I tried searching the Internet for ways to lengthen it, but found the weirdest stuff instead. (I can tie a knot in a cherry stem however.)


#13

I thought everyone knew about this Sovereign remedy?.

(I will just let myself out, as the man used to say)

That look on Her Majesties face is quite normal, the photo was taken at Royal Ascot. You see that expression on any of the famous horse trainers at a race meeting. Her horse is winning, Her opponents horses are losing. “OH YES, bitches, I WIN !”[quote=“fuzzyfungus, post:10, topic:100047”]

We must do SCIENCE to it !

I heard Trump is looking for a Surgeon General…


#16

I was just wondering if the gentleman is a surgeon, or a “surgeon”.


#17

Kind of like… Bod’ saves the Queen.


#18

Maybe the former rather than the latter. ‘State’ of your head beats Head of State every time.

Foreign or domestic, I don’t think it’s gotten so bad that your sinus passages matter to ‘your’ tyrant. Not yet.


#19

There are peer-reviewed studies that say playing the didgeridoo can help, so this actually isn’t as silly as it sounds.

Or a “barber.”
