A Christmas Story

So, I always thought that scene in A Christmas Story, where the boy sticks his tongue to the pole, and it gets stuck, was just a myth, and while it could happen, no one would actually try it.

According to my grandpa's sister, he talked her into licking a drain pipe when they were in elementary school, and he stood there laughing at her while she struggled to get unstuck.

I remember not believing it either when I first heard Jean Shepherd tell that story on the radio. So I kneeled down & stuck my tongue on the metal basket of the freezer. Fortunately I didn't require assistance, but it was tough to unstick.
