    There is a small artery in the tongue. It wouldn't be a horrendous amount of blood, but maybe a cupful or two. Of course it would be really painful.

    The actual tongue is huge, much larger than what we have in her mouth. It would be extremely difficult to rip out a tongue, so cutting is probably a better idea.

    Good luck with your production!
