Nick Stoeberl, the 26-year-old artist and stand-up comedian with a 3.97-inch tongue, used his licker as a paintbrush, dipping it in acrylic paint (with his tongue covered in plastic wrap), and painted a portrait of a giant beaver over the course of six hours. The result was rather impressive, considering he was painting with his tongue on a 24 inch by 36 inch canvas.

"It's a gift," Stoeberl told the Huffington Post. "I have to use it."

This is A THING for Stoeberl, who also has apparently painted a portrait of Steve Harvey. If you venture over to his YouTube channel, you'll find his other works of art. He has a web series called "Tongue Show," which seems to be a weird variety show where he plays an instrument or licks a raw squid and then paints something with his tongue—like a martini.
