Can You Help Me Accessorize My Tongue

One of our regular customers, a young lady, came up to me today at the farmers market and asked if I could help her accessorize her tongue.

We occasionally get weird questions at the farmers market, but this was the most unique request in a while. The tattoo and piercing shop is down the street a bit. This is a very conservative lady and it is unlikely she was talking about that type of accessory.

Here is the answer to the riddle.

My customer held up three leeks and a bag of parsnips. She was talking about cooking beef tongue with vegetable freak vegetables.

I asked her what it tasted like and she said like a slow cooked pot roast. Beef tongue is high in fat and is very tender.

This customer is very articulate and likes joke with us. I'll bet she stayed up all night thinking about that one.
