Woman Who Bit Off Boyfriend's Tongue Apparently Didn't Like What He Was Saying

Say What!? 10

Girlfriend got your tongue? In the case of one man who made the mistake of trying to kiss his girlfriend after a Valentine's Day argument -- she did have it. In her own mouth. And not in a good way. The Chicago couple, who'd been dating for about 10 months, got into an argument at 51-year-old Elaine Cook's apartment. She asked him to leave. But then he said they shouldn't be arguing and tried to make up to her with a kiss. Big mistake. Cook reportedly took that opportunity to bite her beau's tongue. Off.

Ewwww. I guess she was NOT in the mood for a make out session. Reportedly after the man, who doesn't want to be identified (can you blame him?), realized most of his tongue was bitten off, he grabbed it and ran into the kitchen to place his tongue on ice. He then called 911. But unfortunately doctors couldn't sew it back on because of a lack of blood supply.

Despite the fact that Cook was arrested and charged with aggravated domestic battery, the man still sounds like he has a soft spot for his (hopefully ex?) girlfriend. He told the Chicago Tribune:

It makes me sick to my stomach that she's sitting in jail right now, but it's just out of my hands. I have to focus on getting better now.

The man has reportedly been visiting doctors every day and has several sutures in his mouth. Thank goodness he can still speak.

I don't know what this relationship was like, but it doesn't sound like a good one. How can you get so angry at someone -- especially after less than a year, when you should still be in the "honeymoon period"-- that you bite off that person's tongue?! I'm guessing this must have been a toxic relationship from the beginning.

The man might have done well to not try and kiss a woman he'd just been in an argument with -- though certainly he couldn't have suspected he was dating a female Hannibal Lecter. 

Let's hope these two don't take a page from the Chris Brown/Rihanna playbook and reunite. In fact, they shouldn't even speak to each other anymore. But I won't say they should bite their tongues, because that would be crass.

Have you ever been tempted to bite a man's tongue?

So much for with age comes wisdom. I'd love to know what she was thinking. What's her back story.

I don't care what anybody says, I did the same thing back in "97" to my boyfriend. To every action, is a reaction. She was pissed, why would you put anything in a person's mouth when they are pissed off. I don't blame her a bit. She asked him to leave, why would you think she wanted him to kiss her???? It's not her fault. It was mainly a reaction to an action.I know, cause I did it also. I too bite a guy's tongue off.I never got in any trouble. He pushed me that far.I snapped, It's his fault. The look on his face said, that he pushed to hard, and i snapped, and that he deseserved it.

Now if he had popped a good piece of chocolate in her mouth instead, he may have regained favor. <• <•

Nah, a knee to the groin is better.

Krissy Brown - Your reaction is what is wrong with todays society. "He pushed me that far.I snapped, It's his fault." You sound like a typical abuser that can't take responsibility for your actions. Unless he was trying to rape or kill you, that was not right! YOU and you alone control how you react to others. No one can make you do anything. If you felt yourself getting angry enough to become violent, you should have stepped away from the situation. As should this woman.

What a nut job!!! If she wanted him to leave and he wouldn't, she should have locked herself in a room and called the cops. Only individuals with psychological problems would find this acceptable.

Cpn322- i don't think you have the right to judge anyone especially when you don't know the situation, and for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction it's science, why in the hell would you piss someone off the stick something in there mouth!?!? That's common sense you don't make someone mad then kiss them. It's like making someone mad and handing them a gun you don't do it!!!

Krissy, you and this woman should be locked in the same psycho ward! He didn't hit her, abuse her in anyway, wasn't raping or killing her. He was trying to make up with her! She had no right. If my husband tried to kiss me while I wad angry, I'd push him away or at least not open my mouth, not permanently injure him. Lorena Bobbitt's husband was abusive and cheated on her.. That's why people had sympathy. This woman was abusive and cruel and this guy is ignorant as hell if he takes her back and doesn't file charges.
