Here's why you should never, ever eat icicles

Don't eat these... Image Credit: TikTok / @weather_katie
A meteorologist went viral recently with a very convincing reason for why eating icicles is a very bad idea.
There's no denying that icicles - the long shards of ice typically found hanging from your rooftop or window ledges during particularly cold weather - can be breathtakingly beautiful.

Some might argue that these intriguing ice spikes may even look good enough to eat like some sort of natural-made popsicle, however there is a very good reason why you shouldn't do that - as explained in a viral TikTok video posted up recently by meteorologist Katie Nikolaou.

In the video, which actually shows someone chomping down on an icicle found in their garden, she provides a simple explanation that's likely to put anyone off trying to do the same.

"Please don't do that," she said. "I'm a meteorologist, I should know."

"When icicles form it's from water that runs off your roof. You know what else is on your roof? Bird poop. A lot of it. You're eating poop."

Enough said.

Don’t eat icicles! Please respect the fact that I edited out the original woman in the video (I have her permission) #IciclePoop

The icicles dangling from your nose should be safe to eat, I imagine.

Even worse is when one beaks off and beaks your glasses. You'll shoot your eye out!

Another reason to not eat them is what are you going to blame on if you almost shoot your eye out? You might have to give your red Ryder carbine rifle with 500 shot capacity and a compass in the stock and a thingy that tells timeback to your mom.
