Do fish have tongues?

Paper Players is currently having a color challenge.
And ...
Here's my entry:

So do all fish have tongues, or just his rude little guy?

Just had to google it.  According to Focus Science and Technology:
Most fish have a bony structure called the basihyal on the floor of the mouth that superficially resembles a tongue. But it doesn’t have taste buds, isn’t muscular and has very little range of motion, so it isn’t directly equivalent. It probably originally evolved to protect the ventral aorta, which lies very close to the mouth, from impacts with large, wriggly food. 
Am I the only person who googles stupid stuff I really have no need to know?
