How to... Tie a Knot in a Cherry Stem With Your Tongue

If you would like to earn your bragging rights and tie cherry stems into knots with your tongue, you must practice this ancient art. Follow these steps and you'll soon be inviting the envy and awe of an impressed audience.

Step 1
Pick a cherry with the longest stem you can find, especially if you are trying this for the very first time. Eat the cherry or save it as a little reward for yourself after you've finished Step 7.

Step 2
Chew on the stem awhile all the way up and down to soften it up a bit and make it more flexible.

Step 3
Push your tongue on the middle of the stem to bend it into a "U" shape long ways on your tongue. Bite down on it to make it cross into a loop.

Step 4
Hold the stem in place with your teeth at the cross.

Step 5
Push on the end of the stem that is on the top of the cross downward from the tip of the stem while at the same time pushing the loop upward toward the stem with your bottom teeth.

Step 6
Maneuver the knobby end of the stem through the loop and pull it through with your teeth.

Step 7
Tighten the knot by pulling the stem out of your mouth from one end while holding the other end in your teeth.
