The truth is out there, and so is a lot of bullshit, but that just fertilises the truth. The more bullshit you say, the truthier you become.

This little bugger is creepy as all hell. Cymothoa exigua steals blood from the tongue of a fish until the tongue falls off and then squats there and replaces the tongue. The fish can then use it as a tongue and apparently no other harm is done - but it has to be disconcerting, even to a fish.
If some alien invader replaced my tongue and rode around stealing my life force I’d want something in return, special tongue powers, such as it elongates to a foot long or is resistant to chili or tells me cauliflower tastes nice so I can eat my vegetables. 
Mostly elongating, that seems the most useful…
