It's not that uncommon to see "lengua" on Mexican restaurant menus. Usually in tacos.

Yeah, my mother grew up eating a lot of tongue. Used to be a very normal thing and it's still on deli menus here.

I'm pretty sure you can just buy them from a butcher. There are legit (disgusting) recipes for tongue.

Yeah people eat it. This is kind of dated but I remember in one of the Ramona Quimby books, Ramona and Beezus were horrified to find that in order to pinch pennies, their mother had bought tongue for dinner.

At the resort in Cuba we went to, at the buffet one night was a big pile of grey tongues.

mmm, cow tongues are significantly larger [as long and as thick as my forearm]. this is from either a very young one or some other unfortunate critter.
i am really surprised that it would be nailed to the tree, in a bag. makes me wonder if it's kids playing at this sort of stuff. i will have to ask my friend who used to be quite into santeria [who lived in the suburbs of Boston, coincidentally] and see what he says.

Whenever anyone mentions eating tongue the first thing I think of Ramona and Beezus! They were fooled into thinking it was pot roast, but they realised it had a rough surface and that it was tongue.

No idea what the orange powder is, but I'm hoping it's nothing deadly!

Cayenne pepper, perhaps?

Santeria practitioners use the same African-derived beef tongue ritual, but they are likely to place the uncooked tongue on the accuser's or witnesses doorstep as a warning, "decorating" it with cayenne pepper to make it "hot" for the potential speaker.

It was as hard as a rock, so maybe it was all dried out and shriveled up? Okay, I'm grossing myself out now.

I kept having dreams all night that someone was coming to cut off my tongue!

I really hope that's what the person did. But I also feel like the spell wouldn't work as well if the person bought the tongue.

no, it's o.k. to buy it, i think. it's about the symbolism. that's why i think brainy seitan wouldn't be a good substitute. binding someone's brain could be really, really bad.

Wilson has definitely tried to get tongue when we've gone out. I don't remember if he did or not. He is really anti-santeria though. He also ain't got no crystal ball.

Yes. I was actually going around this morning saying, "What are this?" and thinking that there needs to be a Jenna Marbles thread.

This thread was so intriguing! Thanks for making the video raspberrycomplaint!
I think a piece of mother in law tongue plant would be the correct vegan sub.

We told my dad about it, and he said, "Oh, that bag on the tree? That's been there for weeks! I saw it, but I didn't want to touch it." So my mom and I are either braver or stupider than my dad, take your pick.

Oh shiitake! I'm scared as fork for you. Does the bad juju get transferred to you for taking it down?!

Yeah OF COURSE he didn't want to touch it. It was a bloody bag nailed to a tree.

There was no blood! Just orange powder. Sometimes there are blood sacrifices over there, though (chickens mostly).

Maybe the spell caster suffers from social anxiety. If I thought I could avoid direct confrontation by nailing a block of tofu to a tree, I'd be all over that.

We should make that a thing. Nooch and tofu, with some black salt for the full experience.

Yet another use for the miracle super firm tofu.

For a vegan version, I remember when I was into witchcraft (who hasn't dabbled in the black arts as a teenager?) reading a spell that you wrote the name of the person who's bothering you on a piece of paper, and then freeze it in a block of ice in the freezer.

But I'm glad it wasn't a serial killer's way of disposing a body!
