Boy gets his tongue stuck to a pole
A student in Indiana learned a lesson on peer pressure after being dared to stick his tongue to a pole.
Police were called to the 3900 block of Hohman Avenue shortly after 8:30 p.m. 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.
So, if you're the parent, do you get mad at your child or the child who dared your child? Perhaps we should be teaching our kids to just say no to dares?
