Girl Gets Tongue Enhancement Surgery So She Can…
(DailyMail)–After discussing the matter with her parents and language tutor, Rhiannon decided to undergo an operation to correct the condition, despite the fact it has never caused her any problems in speaking English. She underwent a lingual frenectomy, which involves making an incision in the flap of skin. As a result, Rhiannon’s tongue is now about 1cm longer, and she can say words that were impossible before. Rhiannon, of Beeston, Nottingham, said: ‘I’d been learning Korean for about two years, and my speaking level is now high, but I was really struggling with particular sounds. ‘It became apparent after a little while that I was having trouble with the Korean letter ‘L’, which is very frequent and comes from a slightly higher place in the mouth than the English ‘L’, and that my tongue was too short. ‘My pronunciation was very ‘foreign’, but now I can speak with a native Korean accent. The surgical procedure was my only option. It’s not like you can stretch your tongue otherwise. I just decided enough was enough.
I am sure Korea is cool and everything when they aren’t getting bombed by North Korea, but this has to be the dumbest thing ever. First of all…why would you want to learn how to speak Korean? That’s completely useless since you already speak the language that the rest of the world speaks. Also, she got this surgery so she could pronounce the letter “L” better? Way to just spit in their face. Even Koreans can’t pronounce the letter L.
PS: This girl’s boyfriend is the unnamed winner of this whole story
PPS: There is no way this Korean nerd actually has a boyfriend
PPPS: This story is from August 12th so I am sure this girl definitely has a boyfriend by now.
