    I triple-dog dare you: Boy's tongue stuck on pole

    HAMMOND, Ind. - In a scene straight out of the movie "A Christmas Story," a 10-year-old boy got his tongue stuck to a metal light pole. Police said the unidentified fourth-grader was able to tell them that a friend dared him to lick the pole Wednesday night. Temperatures in Hammond were around 10 degrees at the time.

    By the time an ambulance arrived, the boy was able to yank his tongue off the frozen pole.

    Police said ambulance personnel explained to the boy's mother how to care for his bleeding tongue.

    The 1983 movie is set in a fictional city based on Hammond, the hometown of author Jean Shepherd.
