Now, meow a few times, lick your lips and raise your eyebrows twice quickly in succession. Get up, run around the room twice, and then return to the middle of the room and repeat "kočičí jazýčky" five times fast. Undertaken properly this activity will a) reproduce something approximating the Czech phrase for a chocolate candy, b) accomplish your morning excercise, c) reduce boredom, d) convince everyone present of your crazy good Czech skills, and d) double as a show choir audition. For that second d) you have to liberally punctuate everything with jazz hands, add suitable background music, and wear a sequined vest. Disclaimers: depending on your accent, this may only work for North American midwesterners; results not guaranteed, except for the reduction of boredom.
Who knew what an obsession that these little cat tongues could be? They also come in German: Katzenzungen show more tiger-like kittens on the packaging! And they were recently featured on candyblog (it's a sweet blog, no kidding). I found that site from the new Czech links list at Packing for Prague, which looks to be an informative and interesting new(ish) Czech-oriented blog. Yay!
