Those of you who want to look a little more reptilian could find that more difficult now.

Gov. Blagojevich Wednesday signed into law a measure that restricts the practice of tongue splitting in Illinois. The result of it is a forked tongue like a snake's.

The legislation would bar anyone but doctors and dentists from performing the procedure. Offenders could face up to a year in jail.

Supporters predict few professionals will perform tongue splitting. They say the practice is dangerous and could lead to infection.
