GOTTA JUST BE GLAD YOU DIDN'T GET GARPED:

Couple has goodnight kiss, but no tongue (Chicago Sun-Times, June 18, 2004)

A goodnight kiss turned into a man's nightmare when his girlfriend bit off part of his tongue.

The 43-year-old woman told police she became frightened Wednesday morning when her boyfriend squeezed her too tightly while they kissed -- and her reflex was to bite down.

''I guess I bit down too hard,'' the woman told officers, adding that she has been victimized by men in the past.

It wasn't Garp who suffered the loss of his privates, but his wife's boyfriend.

Wasn't Garp shot by a woman who had her own tongue removed? Layers upon layers of symbolism here. Or something.

Reminds me of a favorite scene in a favorite movie:

"Why would anyone want to cut out a man's tongue?"

"Perhaps the previous owner had nothing pleasant to say."
