Where Aren't They Now: 25

Kyle hates tongues!

He is not sure how it started, but for as long as he can remember he has been completely repulsed by the concept of the tongue. Not only is it like some kind of heavy slug living in the human mouth, but it makes vile sounds. Not speech-- that's another topic altogether-- but the slapping, slick sounds as the tongue interacts with food, with teeth, with bubblegum.

Movies are almost impossible for Kyle to watch. Even in the seemingly most benign movies, the most artistic or even the most action-packed and violent films, there is always a passion scene where two characters are jumping at the chance to slosh their tongues together.

The very thought of it turns Kyle's stomach inside out.
