In an act many have dreamed of but never logistically worked out how to accomplish: a Californian man is taking Miley Cyrus' tongue to court.

Charles Nicholas Sarris is suing an equipment supply company after he allegedly got injured while working on a giant tongue-shaped slide for Cyrus' Bangerz tour, CBS reported.

Sarris filed an negligence complaint against ShowFX Inc in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeking unspecified damages.

We're sure building giant tongue slides isn't a specialist field for anyone and who could ever be fully prepared for the onslaught that must have been working on a stadium sized version of the world's most irritating appendage.

One wonders if there will also be a claim for the emotional distress this project may have incurred?

As amusing as it seems the case is no laughing matter.

Sarris says he was hired to help out ShowFX employees who were building the slide at the company's plant on February 3 but the equipment, tools, boxes and platforms provided to him failed and he fell, suffering serious injuries.

Sarris claims the company didn't warn him about the potential dangers involved in the work.

The slide, according to pictures coming out of Miley's tour, seems to be in good working condition.
