Little brothers fall for the triple-dog-dare everytime…
WOODWARD, OK (NBC) – A Woodward, Oklahoma boy is recovering after freezing his tongue to a stop sign pole before school Tuesday morning.
“The first thing that come to my mind was the movie ‘A Christmas Story’ where the kid got dared to stick his tongue to the pole,” responding Woodward firefighter Shane Pringry said.
It was about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday when emergency crews got that call and quickly responded.
“He was up on his tippy-toes. Not just a little bit of his tongue was stuck to the pole,” Pringry said. “He had a large portion of his tongue frozen to the pole.”
They say the boy’s older brother dared him to do it as they waited for the school bus, and the little guy followed through with the challenge.
