National Stick Out Your Tongue Day

When it comes to holidays, today is a day to just stick it! Not only is July 19 National Daiquiri Day, but it is also (National) Stick Out Your Tongue Day!

This "tongue-in-cheek" holiday celebrates the glorious tongue. Did you know the tongue is the "strongest muscle in the body and come in all

shapes and sizes. This muscular and often unappreciated organ is not only vital for speech, the tongue is also used for eating, tasting and swallowing. The average person has about 10,000 taste buds, which are located on and under the tongue, on the cheeks, lips and the roof of the mouth.
