Eater Feature: Meet the Man With the $1.5 Million Dollar Tongue

Wednesday, February 10, 2016 at 11:02 AM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

It’s no secret that famous celebrity body parts are sometimes insured for millions of dollars—from superstar backsides to supermodel legs. But when a talented tongue gets a whopping $1.5 million insurance policy, it would be understandable for one to think Gene Simmons before Sebastian Michaelis.
