Colombian hairdresser says he can lick baldness
November 29, 2000

PEREIRA, Colombia -- Want to lick hair loss? A Colombian hairdresser says he has found a way to lick baldness -- literally. His offbeat scalp treatment involves a special tonic and massage -- with a cow's tongue. "I feel more manly, more attractive to women," says customer Henry Gomez. "My friends even say 'What are you doing? You have more hair. You look younger.'"

For those of you who have not experienced the pleasure of a cow licking you, I tell you it is no pleasure. A cows tongue has raised sharp bumps on it, not a smooth surface like our tongues. Fortunately a cow does not feel a compulsion to lick you like a dog will.
