The tongue belongs to Judge Judy, the pint-sized Queen Bee of the Judge shows where she cheerfully presides hurling barbed insults at the litigants before her. Where else can you watch a jurist perched behind her bench, wearing a black robe with a white-laced collar and red wig(she's grey off camera)litigating small claim cases, where her kindest words for both plaintiff and defendant are "moron" and the ever popular "idiot". She's my kind of gal, I know a lot of morons and idiots but I hold my tongue and just admire the way she tosses around such adjectives with unbridled glee.
Sometimes you start to feel bad for the poor creatures who appear before her, but any cash judgements she awards are paid by the production company, so that softens the abuse somewhat.
Judge Judy has hinted she may soon hang up her robe and that would be a shame, because the older she gets the meaner and crankier she will get and just imagine the tongue lashings she will administer then.
If I had a small claim case I would happily appear before Judge Judy and bare the shredding, as long as at the end of the day I am pocketing a check for 5 grand. I'd suffer the acid-dipped tongue but cash the check. Case closed.
