Quote

In a scene straight out of “A Christmas Story,” a New Hampshire girl got her tongue stuck to a flagpole after licking it during a blizzard.
And it wasn’t even a triple-dog dare.
Maddie Gilmartin, 12, of East Kingston, said she was helping her dad clean up outside last week when an idea popped into her head to stick her tongue on a flagpole.

She should have tried the boiling water in the air trick instead.

I hate to admit it, I did this same thing when I was a kid.  Of course, that was before 'A CHRISTMAS STORY' was a thing.

It was at recess when I think I was in 5th grade.   It stuck instantly.  After a moment of panic, I yanked it off, leaving a few taste buds....My tongue was bloody and sore for some time.

As long the Pole wasn't Roman Polanski, all is fine.

silly is walking around with a pancake on your head.
sticking your tongue to a flagpole in winter is stupidity.

Okay, I admit it too. I did something similar when I was very young as well. My parents had one of those old refrigerator/freezers where the freezer was lined with metal and not plastic like the modern ones are. About a day after they had defrosted the freezer I noticed frost on the inside edge of the freezer and decided to give it a lick. Guess what? Yep, tongue stuck right to it. I did the same thing supervike did; ripped my tongue away very quickly and lost a few taste buds. I never did that again.

What I don't get is how this is even a story. I'm sure this happens to hundreds of people every year, why is this so special?

Kids are curious creatures, they learn from experience....even if it is painfully stupid.
