Licking a 9v battery is pretty funky on your tongue.

Doing the same with a 16V, 5A 1950s (or thereabouts) Meccano transformer isn't so good.

Reminds me of an old joke
What's a girl's chocolate starfish and a battery got in common?

You know it's not a good idea, but you'll probably stick your tongue in it at some point

Ba-dum tish

We took this a stage further
and encouraged one of our engineers to lick the end of a 24v DC power supply. He is still amongst the living but did lose his sense of taste for a while.

I told my sister
that the battery was delicious and that she should try it. She did, only to find it was not delicious at all. Mwah hah hah!!

This is also true of an XLR socket connected to a 50Vdc phantom power supply.
