Was He Triple Dog Dared?

According to the Northwest Indiana Times, a 4th grader got his tongue stuck to a light post.
A North Hammond boy learned a valuable lesson about tongues and freezing metal Tuesday night.

Police were called and found the 10-year-old with his tongue stuck to a streetlight pole.

The Field Elementary School fourth-grader managed to mumble to police that a friend had dared him to lick the fixture.

By the time an ambulance arrived, the boy had managed to yank himself away from the light pole, police said.

Medics explained to the boy's mother, whom they described as "pretty upset," how to care for his bleeding tongue.

I always like "Schwartz created a slight breach of etiquette by skipping the triple dare and going right for the throat."

But what are you going to do? After all, the bell rang.
