cars that can lick things

"Dang, blew out a tire. Maybe licking this finish line will make me feel better..."

Remember Lightning McQueen sticking out his tongue towards the finish line at the end of that first race?

Today in a CVS store I found a "Cars" coloring book titled "The Fast Lane". Flipping through it, I found the depiction of that scene, and it looked... endearingly awkward. McQueen doesn't appear to be stretching out his tongue in a desperate last-ditch effort so much as just sort of desultorily licking the finish line.

I couldn't resist buying it, coloring that picture and making an icon out of it. Mmm, checkerboard pattern...
