Here’s what he says:
Since young, my parents had always taught me: Don’t play with your food. But seriously, the girlfriend and I couldn’t resist posing for this shot in Taiwan.
While we were at their ancient capital city of Tainan (台南), we discovered a local pastry called 牛舌饼, literally meaning “Cow Tongue Biscuit”. These elongated biscuits were soft and chewy with a buttery aftertaste, some having additional flavours such as coffee or cheese. The ones in our mouth happened to taste of strawberry, further resembling the colour of a tongue. Now let’s look at this from a new viewpoint: If you can play and eat your food, why not?
Just don’t ask me to demonstrate french kissing with this please. That will be wrong parenting already.
