A package of non-toxic salts, one in aqueous form, the other powdered. Exothermic when combined. Possibly flavored.

Can quickly detach a tongue from a lamppost, or a faucet, or other metal object.

Comes in a three pack for slow learners.

       Would it work with employees?

       Cheaper solution: make the salts highly emetic.

       Increase sales with the following caption: "Too Late for Winter? Works With Ice Trays."

       //Would it work with employees? - [Ling]// My brain keeps telling me there's a logical reason you would ask, but I can't come up with it.   

       Are your employees apt to tongue-freeze so often that you fear insufficient supply? Are they so inept that they may not understand the instructions? Do they have a different chemical make-up and freezing point than other warm-blooded creatures?   

       Or do you mean to ask if the application could be done by a paid second person?

       Any beverage with a reasonably high alcohol content would work, too. Although that is more than likely the reason one's tongue got stuck in the first place.

       "Possibly flavored." Gads. Make it taste like something horrible, to add a bit of zing to the learning experience.

       I hope you'll all forgive the self-churn - but I can't figure out why I decided to post this in June.   

       I'm recommending it as a Christmas gift.

       umm... salt ?

       Once saw one of the slightly less intellectual test engineers suffer the consequences of making (on a very hot day) an "ice lolly" using a 6 oz cup of orange squash, a screwdriver, and a vat of liquid nitrogen......   

       He received a severe burn to his tongue, a visit to A&E, several days sick leave and a written reprimand.

       lurch: "tongue remover/employees". Nothing to do with freezing; although they might be frozen out by other employees for brown nosing the boss.
