Aside

One problem with being in grad school is that everything suddenly seems to pertain to what you are studying.

I was reading whatshouldwecallme, and I saw the greatest goat showing off its tongue. My first thought?

It must suck to be a goat. The floppy tongue can’t produce all of the lingual sounds that my un-floppy tongue can.

Let’s do a distinctive feature analysis of this goat’s tongue at this moment:

+[floppiness]
+[protruding]
+[superfast]
-[inside mouth]

New life goal: get a pet goat. Name it Noamsky.
