Black Hairy Tongue

I woke up this morning with a black tongue, like I’d been sleep-eating licorice. I wanted to coin the term “Black Tongue Disease,” but the Butcher insisted I had moldy tongue.

Then, at breakfast, he found on the internet that “black hairy tongue” is a side-effect of Pepto-Bismal. So, everything is fine. Except that he keeps making fun of me for having a black hair tongue.
