Kurt's tongue

Post by ValleyGurl84 » Sun Sep 07, 2003 2:45 am

This is something i've always wondered about...what does Kurt's tongue look like? It is like everyone elses? or is it fuzzy like the rest of him?

Pink, I should hope. Blue tongues sound so...reptilian. :urg

Kurt is still human, well partially, and he has a tongue as normal as any person. All pink and assuredly hairless. No furred animal, or person would have fur growing out of their mouth. In the world of nature, it just wouldn't make sense...unless they used it for rope or something :D

I know I've met a biker who HAD a blue tongue, but only through tattooing...

Agreeing with Salinea, I've NEVER seen a human, mutant, and/or other creature with fur or hair in their mouths...unless you forget those every-pesty nose hairs and they begin to travel!! :yech

Sure does, uh hil?

A furry tongue is:eek:eek:eek:eek!!!!!!!!!

Besides I don't think fur could grow from muscle, just from skin...

yah, fur on a tongue is pretty much impossible, seeing as the skin on your tongue is so thin and the hairs would get in the way of chewing up the food for digestion. plus, the pink tongue matches his pink....er.....well, read 'A Not So Kosher Question' if you really wanna know.........

The tongue has pain receptors (which is one of the ways we "taste" spicy foods), and it has "taste buds", but it doesn't have sweat glands, nor hair, and it doesn't shed cells. Since it's meant to always be protected by the rest of the mouth, enclosed in a moist, warm, and relatively sterile environment, it has no need of skin, which is an organ in and of itself, designed to protect the rest of the body from extremes of temperature, dehydration, and bacteria. (This is one of the worst consequences to burn victims. You don't realize how much you rely on your skin until you lose it. Suddenly you're dehydrated, cold, and being bombarded by infectious agents :urg)

In other words, the tongue has no skin. It doesn't need any. It's a muscular organ to itself, kind of like how your heart doesn't have skin, either.

Seriously, thank you for the compliment. I'm kind of a medical trivia buff. I even use my fanfic as a medical soapbox, sometimes.

Take it from a prof. No organism, that I am aware of, has hair on its tongue.

The tongue is an organ for tasting and manipulating food into a ball so it may be swallowed. It is mostly muscle and as it is internal, does not require a covering of hair. Hair on the tongue, if it existed, would be a reservoir for bacteria and other microorganisms. Not a good thing.

Hair functions as a protective covering and also, in some cases, provides sensory input, as in a cat's whiskers. Since the tongue is already protected inside the mouth and has its own sensory receptors, there is no need for a coating of fur. (Besides, that idea is disgusting)

And Kurt’s tongue is pink, like everyone else’s :P

Welcome CuteLittleBamf!
A giraffe's tongue is blue, and so is an okapi's (does anybody else know what an okapi is or am I just a zoological geek?).
Other den dat, I don't know any other blue tongues.
