Watch: Girl Who Never Watched 'A Christmas Story' Gets Her Tongue Stuck to a Flagpole

Watch: Girl Who Never Watched 'A Christmas Story' Gets Her Tongue Stuck to a Flagpole

Jan 08, 2014

In case that iconic scene from A Christmas Story isn't enough proof for you, one girl found out the hard way that you really shouldn't be sticking your tongue to a flagpole in the middle of winter. A New Hampshire girl, who claims to have never seen the Christmas movie (that's even more disturbing in our opinion), was wondering what would happen if she stuck her tongue to a flagpole. So, while her father was out shoveling snow, she ventured out to their flagpole, stuck her tongue out and quickly realized she was in a bit of a pickle.

“I see her standing at the flag pole her arms are waving and I’m not sure what’s going on until I got closer,” said Shawn Gilmartin, the girl's father. “She tried to pull her tongue off of it as soon as it happened and that’s what made it bleed. I had my hands cupped I was blowing, breathing on her lips and tongue.”

Fortunately he managed to get her off the pole without calling the fire department or the cops, though she did need a visit to the hospital and is still sore from the experience. Check out the news report below, and seriously kids -- don't try this at home.


And for those other kids out there who might want to attempt this and never saw the scene from A Christmas Story, you can watch it below.
